Exhibition Trix & Robert Haussmann: Protagonists of Swiss Living Culture, 8 November - 11 December 2019
Curators: Joan Billing, Samuel Eberli
A cooperation between Design + Design and Architekturforum Zürich "on the road".
The thematic focus of the exhibition and the supporting programme is the special key position of Switzerland's best-known international couple of architects and designers, Trix and Robert Haussmann. As a working group, they have moved between architecture, interior design and furniture design and have influenced the design and architecture culture for over half a century, not only in Switzerland but internationally. They were able to detach themselves from their pre-war modernist starting point, critically question their role models such as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Gerrit Rietveld and Marcel Breuer, and playfully and fluently create a transition to "Manierismo Critico". They have proven that the merger of two personalities with different backgrounds can lead to an exciting and multi-faceted work.
Admission is free.
