Hürlemann conceives and designs. Buildings, spaces, settings, furniture and products. In its work, the agency built around architect and designer Stephan Hürlemann responds to everyday needs.

Stephan Hürlemann

Stephan Hürlemann studied architecture at the ETH in Zurich. His passion for furniture and product design lead him, in 2002, to the agency of Hannes Wettstein (1958-2008), which has been called Hürlemann since March 2016. Today Stephan Hürlemann is one of the most sought-after designers in Switzerland. Whether he is designing a light, a chair or an apartment, his thinking remains that of an architect: ‘Everything is architecture. First and foremost, I’m interested in the relationship of different elements with one another. I start thinking about formal appearance only after a compelling structural concept has been found’.

What we do

Design

Stephan Hürlemann’s aim is to design products and furniture to spend a lifetime with. He achieves this standard when objects fulfil a need, when they have a clear structure, display harmonic proportions and have character. Hürlemann only allow himselve formal flourishes when they occur within the conceptual framework he has defined. He believes the foundation of exceptional design is the clever application of limited means.

Specialisms: product development, design studies, art direction, portfolio management, brand advisory.

Architecture

For several years we have focussed particularly on the questions and rituals of living and working. Our buildings and rooms are tailor-made for identities. As architects, one thing is clear to us: a building’s heart beats in its interior. Interior qualities make it intelligent, generate identity and create a feeling of well-being. We therefore address the details of a building’s structure, spatial concept, architectural details and materials applied with just as much consideration as its urban context and façade.

Specialisms: all design topics, collaborations with other architectural practises, feasibility studies, brand consultancy, lighting design, client consulting. 

Scenography

Settings that offer an experience can have a long-lasting effect. Our fair stands and settings convey an emotional experience of a brand, its position, values and products, using simple yet striking means. They are frequently interactive and tell a story.

Specialisms: installation-based fair presentations, brand advisory.
