Altherr played an important role as an advocate of Swiss lifestyle culture and he was a co-founder of the award Die Gute Form, becoming founder of the first furnishing design advice center in Winterthur, Switzerland. His aim was to promote new and contemporary designs for living, not only to the younger generation but to everyone! This publication shows that design culture is able to bring together elements of both past and present. With texts by Alfred Altherr, Arthur Ruegg, Michael Hanak, Susanna Koeberle, Peter Lepel, Claude Lichtenstein and Juho Nyberg.
