Hannes Wettstein

“ The integration of the furniture in its luxurious surrounding is both elegant and self-evident. The innovation is manifested in the cleverness of the details and the consistency of the overall design.”

Hannes Wettstein 1958-2008
Born in Switzerland. In 2001, after working with various companies, design studios and ateliers, he founded “Zed”, a scenario which would allow him to bring his creative talents to different fields from industrial design to architecture, to concept work in the world of communication and the media. Many of the objects he has designed, such as furniture, lamps, bicycles, watches and clocks have become classics. Featuring among his best-known interiors are the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin, the Swiss Embassy in Washington DC and several shops, showrooms and exhibition areas. Wettstein has received numerous international awards for design, including the “Compasso d’Oro ADI” (1994 – 2004), the “Good Design Chicago” (1995 – 2004), and the “Red Dot Award” (2005). Over the years he worked with important companies such as Cassina, Molteni, Ventura, Zeiss, Baleri, Arflex, Est, Revox, Shimano, Artemide, Alessi and Brionvega.
The heritage of Hannes Wettstein (past away in 2008) now called “Studio Hannes Wettstein” for his expressed will, has been collected by his own team leaded by the senior designers Simon Husslein e Stephan Hürlemann.
The cooperation born between Interna and this studio with the project of the Grand Hyatt in Berlin in 1989, is still active today through the creation of high-end products and projects.
