I had come upon this very interesting site and think it would be nice to show you:
Vitra, click on the name and you can go to their beautiful and well designed interactive site. Dedicated to these designers below...based in Switzerland and Germany, producing and selling all over the world.
Bouroullec, Ronan and Erwan Citterio, Antonio
Eames, Charles & Ray
Girard, Alexander Herzog & de Meuron
Van Severen, Maarten
They produce, show and exhibit modern classic furniture for the home, office and public spaces, developed the Vitra House for modern living and a fabulous museum. Which is located in Germany, but you can go on virtual tours from your arm chair...
But if you happen to be near Basel, Switzwerland you are right at the triangle of Switzerland, France and Germany, so you can visit, it's very close by.

And while I was marveling over this wonderful piece by Verner Panton I was reminded of a picture which I had seen only yesterday in the latest Anthropologie catalog:
These chairs must be related, I guess it's the bohemian cousin....
