Zentner house in Zurich: A villa by Carlo Scarpa abroad and its furniture

FORNARI, Davide; MARTINIS, Roberta;

Article:

Zentner house (1964–1968) is the only work ever built abroad by Italian architect and design-er Carlo Scarpa. For nearly 50 years the house was neither accessible nor publicly docu-mented. The house is currently being studied by a group of Swiss researchers as an example of “transnational” design, with the complete documentation (photography, drawing, three-dimensional models) of a surprisingly high number of details, materials, and designs for a building in Switzerland, also influenced by the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, who had a close relationship with the clients. The furniture of the house has a pivotal role in the further devel-opment of the work of Scarpa as a product designer. The whole house hosts a profusion of made-to-measure furniture and fixture designed by Scarpa. As well as the undocumented designs the current study highlights the impact of an Italian project on Swiss and international scenes.
