Hans Eichenberger (*1926) shaped Swiss living culture in the 1950s and 1960s in particular, but also beyond. On the occasion of his 90th birthday, for the first time in more than 30 years, this monograph presents his work comprehensively in essays, object-related texts and newly taken, detailed photographs of the original furniture.
After training as a carpenter and draftsman, Eichenberger designed furniture for the Röthlisberger Collection, de Sede, Strässle, the Swiss Design Collection, Wogg and other manufacturers in his own studio in Bern. His work is characterized by the use of metal, leather and plastic and includes, among other things, more than 50 pieces of seating furniture such as the "HE-113" armchair (1956) and the "Saffa chair" (1958). As a freelance interior designer, he set up, for example, the Geneva branch of the furniture store Teo Jakob, the Stauffacher bookstore in Bern and, together with the architect group Atelier 5, the bistro and a shop in the Bern settlement of Halen. In addition to numerous Swiss awards, Eichenberger's work has also been ennobled by the inclusion of some of his furniture in international collections such as those of the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein or the MoMA in New York.

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
