High Back Armchair by Werner Max Moser

Can be found at Embru

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.

Rare Mystery Cantilever Chair – Design Icons 2024 – 05

Cocoon Collectables had sold the first chair. The Pair was sold by Studio Tout, who indicated it being a chair manufactured by Gavi?
Design Market sold four of them. Compared with for instance the Cesca Chair it is a clever inverted cantilever design. I just wonder if it doesn’t lean to the front and you slide out of it when you put your weight in it.
