The timeless ggw plywood chair with its simple silhouette was designed by Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer in collaboration with designer Hannes Wettstein for Gigon/Guyer's conversion of the Basle art museum. Its specialty is the plywood seat shell, which seems to hover above the chrome-plated metal frame. This shows off the veneer whether it's painted or stained. What adds to the chair's perceived lightness is the seat shell's tapered front and upper back, accentuated by its legs.
Its even-tempered appearance, which seems familiar and natural, places it fully in line with the horgenglarus chair tradition and makes it easy to integrate with existing rooms. The ggw chair was showcased on the Swiss Designer’s Saturday in Langenthal in November 2004.
