A fine example of early 50's Swiss design. The chair was designed by the Swiss designer, Jakob Mueller and was sold at the store Wohnhilfe. Measurements: 18 x 43 x 15 inches. This design is particularly interesting as there is cultural and philosophical meaning behind its origin. It was a part of a carpentry collective's effort to help themselves recover in post war Switzerland and Europe after World War II in 1945. This idea flourished into the Wohnhilfe store, which still exists today in Zurich. This design is very important in Swiss design history and evolution as it shows one of the first intellectual and artistic efforts to incorporate the new look of furniture with traditional Swiss furniture forms.
