Hannes Wettstein is viewed as one of the most innovative and esteemed designers in Switzerland.
In 1991, he founded his own firm, which soon expanded and took on assignments both locally and around the world.
As a teacher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and later as a professor at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, Hannes Wettstein has made his mark on the design trends of today.
Since Hannes Wettstein’s death in 2008, Studio Hannes Wettstein has carried on his work, led by designer and architect Stephan Hürlemann. In 2016, the company changed its name to Hürlemann.
