Hannes Wettstein (1958-2008) was one of the most interesting designers of his generation, creating projects ranging from products to communication and industrial design to architecture. He was known as one of the most innovative and influential designers from the Swiss school. This was demonstrated by the many awards and competitions he won, such as the selection for the Compasso d’Oro in 2004 for his Dada Nomis kitchen. In 1991, with the creation of his interdisciplinary studio, Zed, Wettstein fully developed as a designer and architect, by establishing his corporate image and designing architectural projects.

Hannes Wettstein worked for the Grand Hyatt hotel chain in Berlin, designed the Swiss Embassy in Tehran and in Washington DC. He worked with the great names of international design – Cassina, UMS Pastoe, Shimano, Baleri Italia, Artemide and the Molteni Group. Today his artistic and design heritage is collected by “the Hannes Wettstein Studio “, where his team works.

He was designing particularly successful products for Molteni amongst others. Following his death, his business partner architect and designer Stephan Hürlemann led the company together with a collective of designers into a new era under the banner Studio Hannes Wettstein.

The reversi fauteuil armchair has been designed by Hannes Wettstein and is almost a throwback to art deco: dignified shapes but with generous, cozy volumes. All feet are in chromed steel.
