Synopsis: In the pantheon of 20th century furniture designers, the names of Swiss architects Trix and Robert Haussmann are rightly invoked along with greats like Ray and Charles Eames and George Nelson. A retrospective tribute to the Hausmanns long career that began in the 1950s, this inspiring book features their works from 1977 to 2007 for Zurich Rothlisberger Kollektion, a rare studio specializing in hand craftsmanship. Vintage and contemporary photographs, reproductions from catalogs and advertisements, interior installations complete with lighting, models and drawings show the close collaboration between the designers and the Rothlisberger artisans. Includes recollections by Peter Rothlisberger and interview with Trix and Robert Haussman.

Book Description Niggli Verlag, Switzerland, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 284 x 216 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since 1967 Trix and Robert Haussmann have been partners at their architecture and design office. Since 1981 they have operated in Zurich under the name of Allgemeine Entwurfsanstalt. Their work ranges from the planning, building and renovation in private, business and public fields to product design for clients at home and abroad. The cooperation of Trix and Robert Haussmann with the Rothlisberger carpenters, which started in 1979, yielded numerous successful experiments in artistic and handcrafted furniture. These exclusive designs are not comparable to normal household furniture from the retail store; which is why they were sold under the name /objects/ in the Haussmanns manierismo critico at first, as a limited edition of 15 pieces each. Truncated column, column cabinet, wall dresser and bridge desk - all pieces were manufactured with an olive ash grain and a colour coating. The design objects were highly sophisticated in the planning of each detail as well as their realisation and required a high level of innovation, new techniques and technical expertise. The close collaboration and good relation between manufacturer and designers were what constituted the special appeal of the finished products. This publication presents the furniture that was developed in Trix and Robert Hausmann s Allgemeine Entwurfsanstalt for the Rothlisberger Collection. With texts by Peter Rothlisberger, Alfred Hablutzel, Trix and Robert Haussmann. Bookseller Inventory # AA29783721208184
