Take a Seat

No. 153 - 156

The factory draft "Classic 1-380" from the year 1918 has been extended by a mechanical music box of the traditional swiss company Reuge. The chair becomes the resonant body. Postfossil honours the convincing design with music from past days and emphases the quality of swiss craft industries. 

With the project "Take A Seat", the Café "Z am Park" in Zurich used its chairs to make creative self-reflection accessible to a public audience. Designers were invited to redesign the over 100-year-old classic of the Swiss furniture factory Horgenglarus.
