Dieter Waeckerlin is a lesser-known but highly talented interior architect and furniture designer from Switzerland. His talent is apparent from this stunning wardrobe design which the artist created in 1958 for Behr Möbel. Waeckerlin, born in 1930, was an accomplished cabinet maker, interior architect and furniture designer from Switzerland. Most eye-catching are his sideboards for Behr Mobel Germany. Waeckerlin often uses a clean line and tries to capture the essence of functional minimalism in his designs. A fantastic design from a pioneer in minimalist design.
