A pioneer who helped years ago to make Swiss furniture design internationally so well known and renowned today was certainly Gian Franco Legler. Early on, he thought and acted globally, always with a vision that extended far beyond Switzerland. He not only designed his furniture and objects, but was also intensively involved in manufacturing conception and production planning.

His passion was not only design, but above all functionality for everything he designed – like his classic Basket wicker chair from 1951, awarded the Good Design Award by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York. This and other masterpieces are presented in detail in this volume. Guest contributions by distinguished authors, the expert texts, and the carefully selected illustrative material provide a detailed tribute to Legler’s remarkable legacy.

With contributions by Hubertus Adam, Bendamin Adler and Jörg Bonner
