matura esprit 6-595

Hannes Wettstein, 2007

matura is the comfortable evolution of the compact, straight miro chair. The bold sweeps of backrest and rear legs give distinction to its geometry.

The matura solid wooden chair with its warm minimalism continues the factual language of the horgenglarus collection into the 21st century. It is the comfortable evolution of the compact, straight miro chair. The bold sweeps of backrest and rear legs give distinction to its geometry. Thanks to a variety of seat widths, depths and heights as well as materials, the matura is suited for a wide range of purposes and architectural styles. A staff canteen needs a different type of chair than a café, bistro, or fine-dining restaurant. A council chamber or boardroom makes other demands than a hotel room or a private dining room. Larger hotels, restaurants, or administrative offices often combine more than usage type in one building. matura's end-to-end design line offers a large variety of functions. The seat's comfort level varies from wooden seat or cushion to very comfortable belt upholstery.
matura has character and identity. The warm and natural appeal of its wood makes matura a beautiful contrast to modern corporate architecture. In traditional buildings, its wood links to the building's history whereas its streamlined shape references the present. matura embodies the core competency of horgenglarus' unique wood-bending techniques and impresses with its inherent solidity.
matura was showcased in 2008 on the Swiss Designers’ Saturday with an installation made from rustling leafs. matura is one of the last designs by Hannes Wettstein.
