Swiss Embassy

Washington DC, USA

Year: 2016
Architect: Steven Holl, Justin Rüessli

The building of the Swiss Embassy in Washington D.C., resulting from the collaboration between US architect Steven Holl and Swiss architect Justin Rüessli, has won several architecture awards, including a prestigious prize from the Royal Institute of British Architects. Potocco has left its mark on the outdoor spaces with its chairs and armchairs from the Vela collection by Hannes Wettstein. Vela chairs and armchairs have a sled base and a lightweight, minimalist painted tubular metal frame, fitting perfectly into the building’s architectural concept. In addition, their hand-woven seats and backrests make them unique, emphasizing Potocco’s artistry in combining fine craftsmanship and cutting-edge industrial production.
