Etage  - Moritz Schmid - <span class="node-unpublished">Röthlisberger</span>

Etage treats a piece of furniture’s open and closed modes in a completely new way. By raising or lowering a thin, wrap-around shell, a concealed shelf is revealed, ready for storing objects. One part of the unit is always open, while the other closed. Like an oversized wooden box, the shell slides up and down thanks to a large handle, where it then locks into position. producer: Röthlisberger Etage won the Design Preis Schweiz 2013 and the Swiss federal design award 2013

Moritz Schmid studied product design at the Academy of Art and Design in Basel. During 4 years he worked as a designer and projectleader in the studio of Alfredo Häberli. In 2008 he founded his own studio in Zurich. Since then he has worked in various fields of design, from furniture to tableware as well as exhibition design for companies like Atelier Pfister, Glassworks Edition, Glas Trösch, Helmrinderknecht contemporary design gallery, Kvadrat, Museum of Design Zurich, Röthlisberger and others.
