Trix and Robert Haussmann form what is probably the internationally best-known architect couple in Switzerland. Their joint work began in 1967 with the founding of the office that later became known as "Allgemeine Gestaltungsanstalt Zürich", questioned modernity and redesigned the areas of design, interior design and architecture. Robert Haussmann taught at the Zurich School of Applied Arts, the ETH Zurich and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Trix Haussmann also at the ETH Zurich. In 2013, the two were honored with the Grand Prix Design Schweiz.
This new volume in the series "Protagonists of Swiss Living Culture" examines the arc of tension between the early and late phase of Haussmann's work. Based on in-depth insights into individual projects, he provides information on how the Haussmanns playfully, fluently and consistently made the transition from modernism to "manierismo critico", how they took up and implemented the social change between the late 1960s and the 1980s, and always staying true to themselves. The (chrono-)logical sequence of their work is presented with numerous images and documents, so that the contrary positions are comprehensible and illustrated as a continuum.

Joan Billing and Samuel Eberli founded Design+Design in 2007. As curators and publishers, they salvage hidden treasures from Swiss design history and present them to the public through publications and exhibitions.

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
