Werner Max Moser was a Swiss architect, he was born in Karlsruhe and studied architecture with his father Karl Moser at the ETH Zurich from 1916. After working in Stuttgart and with Frank Lloyd Wright in the USA, he returned to Switzerland in 1926. In 1931 he founded Wohnbedarf AG together with Sigfried Giedion and Rudolf Graber, in 1937 he was a co-founder of the Haefeli Moser Steiger architectural firm and from 1958 he taught at the ETH Zurich.

Moser designed a whole range of furniture for Embru, some of which became very popular with customers and were subsequently produced in series. His designs are often characterized by a hidden sophistication, such as the adjustment of the seating position in the Moser armchair. These special features enabled the piece of furniture to be patented.
