1987

Out of the frenetic turmoil of Wettstein’s design activity, one day emerged the idea of a chair; defying all known logic, the structure of the back, curved forwards. With this idea as basic condition of the design, form was translated into function. During the revision of the project for industrial production, the back also became an arm and the chair was transformed into a small armchair. This “supersleek” creation, seemingly made out of air and a clever idea, is surprisingly comfortable.
