Architecture and sacral

On June 5, 2019, we invited together with the AIT-Dialog to the theme evening "Architecture and Sacral" at the Stadtpalais Stuttgart. Many renowned architects and interior designers accepted our invitation and let themselves be informed and inspired by the lectures given by Michael Ragaller (schleicher.ragaller Architekten) on the conversion and renovation of the St. Fidelis church and Stefan Kamm (Kamm Architekten) on the St. Peter community centre project.

Prof. Martin Ebert (Studio Meda London) introduced the guests to the dom chair programme, which he designed in 2014 for the cathedral in Hildesheim. The Hildesheim Cathedral was our first major project in which this chair range, specially developed for sacred buildings, was used. Since then we have further developed the dom chair together with Martin Ebert. We were also able to supply the dom chair to the St. Peter community centre presented by Stefan Kamm.

Unsere Schweizer Design Ikonen in München

With Ica Bally as the guest of honour, we opened a small exquisite exhibition on grand Swiss designs yesterday at böhmler im tal in Munich. Ica Bally, the 95-year old widow of the architect and designer Jürg Bally who designed the famous ess.tee.tisch table in 1951, related the history of the ess.tee.tisch table at first hand to the media representatives attending the event and, having witnessed an important era in design, she told them about the spirit of optimism in the 1950s. Bally’s design is the focal point of the exhibition and demonstrates that Swiss design has created some iconic chairs, but very few iconic tables like the ess.tee.tisch table.

The ess.tee.tisch table met with great interest and the lifting mechanism that the Swiss engineer and designer Daniel Hunziker further developed and perfected in 500 working hours was closely examined and discussed by the guests invited in the evening, including many architects.

böhmler will continue to exhibit classics and innovations from the history of horgenglarus in the pavilion of the böhmler Passage until the beginning of September.
