Klio 3-350 by Studio Hannes Wettstein – 2018 IMM Cologne 06

Horgenglarus is a small old Swiss furniture factory. It is Swiss oldest furniture factory.

It bends beech and oak for its chairs, but rather than ready made rods like Thonet it steam bends solid logs and after the bending carves out the chair parts like for this Klio Chair which combines classic chair making with a very modern look by the line of its back. The Klio was designed in 2014 by Simon Husslein and Stephan Hürlemann of Studio Hannes Wettstein.

Horgenglarus – 2012 IMM Cologne (19)



When I visited IMM Cologne 2012, I liked the booth of the Swiss furniture manufacturer Horgenglarus at first sight. Reportedly it is the oldest furniture manufacturer of Switzerland, it demonstrated its awareness of todays “design speak”.
