Hannes Wettstein was one of the most innovative and influential designers in Switzerland. His products, furniture, and interior designs not only influence our everyday life, but also the way we understand design in the present day. In 2008 Wettstein died aged 50. For the first time his life's work will now be celebrated and documented in a monograph. The publication presents images from Wettstein's world - works, sketches, and personal objects. The essence of his work is palpable in their diversity and illustrates his design philosophy. The comprehensive catalogue of works transforms the monograph into a reference work. Complemented by quotations and anecdotes from Wettstein's life, and statements from personalities from the worlds of design and architecture, Seeking Archetypes forms a multi-layered portrait of an extraordinary designer

Werner Aisslinger : fast forward by Werner Aisslinger ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When in the not too distant future, the first publications look back at the design of the past 20th century and the new 21st century, the work of Werner Aisslinger will certainly represent a constant. Not only because of the huge success of his products. But above all due to the material and technical, the typological and conventional potential of his furniture and lights, his system developments, his small-scale architecture and interiors, in short due to the whole catalogue of his interventions in contemporary design. With reference to more than 30 projects, the book shows the step change so typical of Aisslinger between self-defined experiment and precisely coordinated contract work. It is the first documentation of the studio founded in Berlin in 1993. Before that, Aisslinger worked as a freelancer for Jasper Morrison and Ron Arad in London and with Michele de Lucchi in Milan. The author Volker Albus is a renowned design journalist and professor for product design at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe
