Herzog & de Meuron‘s Chäserrugg Gipfelrestaurant sits high on the top of switzerland’s chäserrugg mountain. The humble wooden structure is situated within a ski resort in the toggenburg region amongst a unspoiled landscape, at an altitude of approximately 2260 metres. Because of the venue’s function as a restaurant and meeting place, the owners wanted to furnish the chalet-style establishment with a stackable wooden chair that blended well with the timber construction, as well as being easy to stack and store away when they weren’t needed.

The Herzog & de Meuron team, lead by senior partner Christine Binswanger, answered with Konstantin Grcic‘s ‘B chair’ by BD Barcelona Design. The simplicity and utilitarian function of Grcic’s seating piece, made from a combination of industrial and manual processes, suits the interior well. the ‘B chair’ is wooden with pieces of aluminum in its structure; and its legs are X-shaped that accommodate a foldable seat that allows for horizontal stacking, exactly what the architects were looking for to complete the project.
