Hans Bellmann (1911–1990) is one of the most important protagonists of Swiss home decor and had a major influence on it in the 1950s and 1960s. Shaped by his studies at the Bauhaus in Dessau and Berlin and his work with Mies van der Rohe, Bellmann symbolically formulated the wishes of the life plans of his time in his independent and consistent work. The Swiss Werkbund honored this achievement with a dozen 'Die Gute Form' awards. After his return to Switzerland in 1934, Hans Bellmann began his cooperation with the company Wohnbedarf AG. As a freelance architect and designer, he developed furniture, built single-family homes, set up furniture shops and designed industrial products. He was also a lecturer at the Zurich School of Applied Arts and the Ulm School of Design.
This first monograph presents the work of Hans Bellmann in detail: with a classifying essay as well as many newly created photographs and texts on the individual objects.

Morocco at heart.
Soft hills, warmth of the sun, silence, in the distance you can hear the sheep, on the hills the carpets are spread out to dry, colored surfaces in the otherwise so calm landscape. This image presents itself to the viewer when visiting the carpet regions of Morocco.
Each piece is unique
Each of our carpets, be it made to measure or a one-off, is made by hand in Morocco. Each piece is unique. Great designers such as Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames or Alvar Aalto have already appreciated the simplicity and coziness of the hand-knotted masterpieces and have used them in their projects and living spaces. There is not only a lot of wool in one square meter of carpet, but also a lot of skill, time and dedication of the weavers from the Atlas Mountains. After the knotting process, the rugs are combed clean, washed and sheared several times before they are ready for the living room. In every carpet that we are allowed to deliver to our customers there is a piece of Morocco with its very own history
