MisuraEmme: AR1

There’s less than one month to take full advantage of getting 25% off an Atelier piece by MisuraEmme. We are now featuring the beautiful AR1 piece in which its structure is tubular chromed steel at 20mm. The Icebox is inox steel and its bottle container is perforated sheet-aluminium. AR1 also has a container with two flap doors in maple lacquered black with an internal finish in birchwood. The wheels are chrome steel with white tires and it has a pull-out top in multilayered wood with a steel profile covered in black laminated plastic.

About the designer: Alfred Roth

Alfred Roth studied architecture in Zürich with Karl Moser. Roth worked in the studio of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, for whom he designed the two houses of the International Exposition in Stuttgart. In 1931 he opened his own atelier and carried out important projects in Switzerland, Sweden, the United States, and in the Middle East. In collaboration with Marcel Breuer he constructed the “Doldertal” houses in Zürich. In addition to serving as guest professor at the Universities of Harvard, Saint Louis, and Polytechnic High School in Zürich, he published several books on architecture. Many of Alfred’s publications focused on his liaisons with the most famous exponents of modern architecture, such as Le Corbusier, Loos, Hoffmann, Perret, Van De Velde, and Piet Mondrian.
