History Swiss Graphic Design, Wohnbedarf

    Newer Older

    The Zurich Wohnbedarf firm was a pioneer in furniture manufacturing in Switzerland who started up in 1931, producing pieces of contemporary furniture that were practical, easily handled, well designed and built and sold at moderate prices. (IKEA, were you listening? I'm sure that you were when you started up.) Wohnbedarf's publicity followed the contemporary design principles of the company. (Gee, the only time that I can ever imagine seeing a bedroom this clean would be in the state penitentiary or the state psychiatric hospital, but I love the simple layout.)
