More about this product

Max Ernst Haefeli, a pioneer of Swiss modernity, designed Switzerland's first architects chairs in 1926 for horgenglarus. Contrary to other designers, Haefeli didn't seek to break with tradition but created furniture that had a familiar feel to it. The simplicity, beauty of shape, and timelessness of Haefeli's wooden chair is legendary. Its premium workmanship is durable and sustainable. Basically, its shape hasn't changed since 1926. Its unobtrusive elegance and economical use of motion helped the haefeli to maintain its effect for decades and it remains a big hitter for residential spaces as well as hotels and restaurants to this day.

As early as in 1927, the Zurich handicraft museum showcased Haefeli's furniture in its "Form ohne Ornament" exhibition, including model 293, the first modular furniture of Swiss modernity. His chairs were therefore published in prominent positions and exhibited regularly. With the haefeli, horgenglarus is producing a well-known piece of furniture forming part of Switzerland's visual culture. In 2014 for example, the "House of Switzerland" was furnished with the haefeli, As "Modell 4," the haefeli is part of Zurich's design museum collection.
