A celebration of nearly a quarter century collaboration between the family-run, specialty fashion store Weinberg and the design and architect duo of Trix + Robert Haussmann.
Not only did Weinberg & Trix + Robert Haussmann work together on shaping the Weinberg stores along the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, but within the context of this working relationship, also for fashion brands, including Lanvin and Courrèges, for which they developed together atmospheric and cleverly innovative store concepts in the vein ofthe Haussmann's “Critical Mannerism.” Using plans, drawings, and architectural photographs, Haussmann für Weinberg sheds light on their six collaborations that date back twenty years from the publication date of 2015.
Richly illustrated with news clippings and company brochures Haussmann für Weinberg is a fashion, design, and architecture book in equal parts that precisely captures the Zeitgeist and shines a light on an ironic, illusionistic, Swiss Modernism that goes beyond strictly “good form.”
