NEW COLLECTION 2015 by This Weber for team by wellis

March 29th, 2015

This Weber has designed a whole new Collection of home furniture for team by wellis. On their website they promise “a new Swiss living experience” which is rather promising a bit too much. But it is a solid collection with one or two strong up-to-date classics, such as the act sideboard shown on the picture above.

As team by wellis describes on their website:
This Weber has given his designs a reduced, even slim-line appearance. His designs include a variety of colours which allow a personal touch. Combined with your favourite pieces, the new collection from Team by Wellis presents a comfortable and functional setting for your life. It will ensure long-lasting enjoyment, and all of those who use it and see it will always feel welcomed.”

THE CARVED CHAIRS by Linn Kandel and Dimitri Bähler

March 24th, 2015


«This series of chairs for “take a seat” is a homage to swiss traditional wood carving techniques by Linn Kandel and Dimitri Bähler. More precisely, our inspiration came from different patterns applied on chairs, stools or animal sculptures carved directly into a tree trunk. Different textures representing fur, feathers or plants have been created by hand with a simple repetitive motion.

Friday 27.03 from 7pm, at 8pm auction at Z am Park of the chairs (also with Big-Game, Wiebke Ahues, Carlo Lienhard, Raum B)
