On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is realizing a very special project that brings one of the centerpieces of its collection, Fritz Glarner’s permanently exhibited “Rockefeller Dining Room” (1963/64), closer to its original purpose.

The designer Alfredo Häberli, who was born in Argentina in 1964 and lives in Zurich, was invited to conceive a new interior design for the “Rockefeller Dining Room”, so as to make it possible to experience Glarner’s room-specific work in the context of a dining room once again. However, instead of incorporating the Rockefellers’ furniture elements, Häberli’s contemporary design is tailored to suit the current museum situation and the historical spatial setting. The results comprise a dining table, chairs, a specially made carpet, curtains and a new lighting system.
