design: Christoph Jenni ⁄ category: stackable armchair
Under simple lines and natural volumes, Christoph Jenni’s Hart armchair hides a complex construction project, as evidenced by the particular junction between the backrest and the structure of the armrests. Stackable, it is available both in wood and upholstered versions.
Christoph was born 1976 in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. After moving to Switzerland with 14 years of age he finished school in Switzerland and studied Industrial Design at FHNW. 5 years of working experience at Hannes Wettstein design studio followed, and in 2012 he opened his own Studio in Bern. He is a lecturer at HSLU in Lucerne. Christoph describes his work as a synthesis of his Brazilian heritage and Swiss education, combined with the acribic an formally calm experience he made while working for Hannes Wettstein.
