Rock Cable Car Chair by Adrien Rovero for Mountain Climbers

Adrien Rovero was one of 40 swiss artists, architects and designers invited to transform 40 year old cable cars into new objects. Created for Mountain Climbers, a Swiss cultural and sustainable project benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland, Rock is the first of 40 projects to be revealed. Rock was premiered at the opening of Rovero’s solo show, Landscale, at Lausanne’s Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains (MUDAC). For this project he decided to celebrate the rocking movement of the cable car and thus to create a garden rocking chair.

A selection of projects will be revealed at Design Miami in Basel in 2013 and the remaining projects will be revealed in Basel during the fair week in 2014. The exhibiting will be touring in Switzerland in different cities and followed by a Christie’s auction, benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Switzerland.
