Furniture in Dialogue_

They created Swiss design icons: The Soft Chair (1967), the Cloud Lamp (1970) and the Stack of Drawers (1981). For some forty years, Susi and Ueli Berger’s work has been guided by the credo that “only a new idea justifies a new piece of furniture.” Contrasts between product design and object art, and suitability for everyday use characterize their designs. A playfully provocativeness and the combination of rationality and sensuality are additional hallmarks of the Bergers.

Featuring a wealth of previously unpublished original drawings, plans, photographs, and promotion materials, as well as a catalogue raisonnée of Susi and Ueli Berger’s collaborative work and an illustrated biography, this groundbreaking book offers first-ever survey of their life and oeuvre.
