More about this product

Stylish, delicate and yet robust—moser is the epitome of the Swiss chair and has become horgenglarus' best-known piece of furniture. It has been pictured in all horgenglarus catalogs published since 1932. Architect Werner Max Moser first showcased his wooden chair in 1931 at the Neubühl home show in a version with a broad back. After the war, the chair continued to be in great demand. It was pictured in 1954 on the title page of the product catalog published by the Swiss association of workmen, and in 1958 its models "183 M" and "183 MA" received the "Die gute Form" award.

The moser chair can be used in a multitude of environments and is very comfortable to sit also for extended periods. Werner Max Moser, a student of Frank Lloyd Wrights, limited his first furniture design to absolute essentials—yet the moser chair with its round legs and their slight sways creates an air of familiarity. It is reminiscent of the era's bentwood chairs and of the classic horgenglarus chair.

There are chairs with similar purism, a comparable level of stability and comfort, but it's the combination that makes the moser unique thanks to its stable seat frame. The robust cane wickerwork is hand-woven into the chair frame and knotted there to give it distinctively more hold than machine wickerwork pressed into a groove. A continuity of proven elements and they are as modern today as they were then.
