More about Neue Räume


New: Arcos Outdoor

Arcos has been the center piece of many dining rooms for years. Finally it is now available for outdoor use. The sculptural base with its see-trough characteristics give the table a light, yet elegant look.

For the outdoor areas, we use table tops made of SM Quartz, which traditionally is used for kitchen tops and is easy to care for. The polished stone repels food residues and is highly resistant to liquids such as wine, coffee, lemon juice or olive oil.

Elegant and yet very easy to care for, so you can enjoy summer evenings around the family table hassle free.

Available now at your local dealer.

The entire Torsio range is now also available in oak natural effect lacquer, a slightly lighter natural shade with additional UV protection to prevent the yellowing of the oak. This finish has received great feedback from numerous other products of our collection.

From an energy guzzler to a passive house wins the Watt d’Or

We are pleased to be among this year’s winners of the Swiss Energy Award Watt d’Or. The award, presented by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), honours the best energy projects by innovative Swiss companies.

In the category Buildings and Space, the project “From an energy guzzler to a passive house” at the Rosenbergstrasse in St. Gallen took home the price. The refurbishment was realised rapidly and cost-effectively and the building now easily meets the passive house standard. This is due to a cost-effective low-technology heating and ventilation system which was developed in partnership with Dr Beat Kegel and manufactured and installed by Röthlisberger Innenausbau.

Stack of Drawers limited edition 2020

Now, after almost 40 years, the furniture sculpture designed by Susi and Ueli Berger is experiencing a small revolution: the design classic is now available in a limited edition of only 15 new pieces in Swiss walnut. To do justice to the original design idea, Swiss walnut with similar wild wood characteristics was selected and carefully assembled by hand in Gümligen. For inquiries please contact E-Mail


Rö brings fresh wind into the HSG

In the building on Rosenbergstrasse in St. Gallen, which is used by the University of St. Gallen (HSG), energy consumption was reduced by over 90% thanks to innovative climate solution elements from Röthlisberger Innenausbau. The various components for heat and cold distribution were prefabricated in a modular fashion using CNC manufacturing and assembled on site within a very short time. The renovated office property from the sixties now not only offers increased comfort, but also convinces aesthetically. More information under: Projekt Rosenbergstrasse

Robert & Trix Haussmann – A Retrospective

Nottingham Contemporary Gallery (UK), 14 Jul 2018 – 07 Oct 2018

The Nottingham Contemporary Gallery “presents the first UK retrospective of Trix & Robert Haussmann – one of the most significant and intriguing Swiss architects and designers of the twentieth century. The exhibition celebrates the duo’s playful innovations, concerning illusion and ambiguity.”

It shows highlights from the archives of Trix & Robert Haussmann, the Museum of Design in Zurich and the private collection of Peter Röthlisberger.

The whole article can be read here.



Susi and Ueli Berger made design classics. For the Röthlisberger Kollektion, furniture such as the Fächermann or the iconic Stack of drawers were made, which is still unparalleled in terms of design and quality and has been sold all over the world since 1982. At present, in Gümligen furniture carpenters are passionately producing the umpteenth series of this classic; this is worth a visit to our manufactory.

A new catalogue of works and an exhibition have open up a comprehensive view of Susi and Ueli Berger’s furniture for the first time.

  • The exhibition “Pa-Dong! – The furniture of Susi and Ueli Berger” can be seen until August 19 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich in the Toni-Areal.
  • The catalogue of works “Susi and Ueli Berger – Furniture in Dialogue”, edited by Anna Niederhäuser and Mirjam Fischer, has been published by Scheidegger and Spiess.

SRF Culture dedicates the following article to Susi & Ueli Berger.

«Stabellö» wins the «Design Preis Schweiz» Edition 2017/18

We are excited to have won the coveted Design Prize Switzerland in the Furniture Category with the reinterpretation of the traditional «Stabellö» chair. The modern and functional variation of the classic chair design by designer Tomoko Azumi convinced the international jury on November 3rd in Langenthal.

Our «Stabellö» includes important elements of the traditional chair from the Alpine region: the seat and the turned legs are still made of solid wood. However, it astounds with an innovative and comfortable backrest. Made from plywood and shaped in three dimensions, the backrest is no longer anchored but connected to the seat by means of a visible screw attachment. «Stabellö» stands for tradition in conjunction with innovative craftsmanship – and cuts a good figure everywhere, in the loft, in the chalet or in the old-fashioned parlour.

The «Design Preis Schweiz» is awarded every two years for «outstanding Swiss design». Out of 45 nominations, 13 winning projects were selected. The focus was on products, projects and services which consider design not just as a «form or colour-giving process», but as a means to solve problems «in a comprehensive and expedient manner».

Together with Tomoko Azumi, we are celebrating the «Design Preis Schweiz 2017/18» and look forward to continue inspiring juries and customers with innovative and timeless designs.

Rövolution 2017

On 25th Augut the official handover of the family business on to the next generation was celebrated under the heading “Rövolution”, as well as the  40th anniversary of Röthlisberger Kollektion.

Over 70 exhibited pieces of design furniture from the last 40 years impressively demonstrated Röthlisberger’s standards of design and quality, which have been a part of their work for decades. The prestigious design office atelier oï developed a scenography and various installations especially for the event, which led through the various production halls, drawing together the indoor and outdoor areas. They revealed their full potential after dark, creating an inspiring mood through the interplay of light, material and movement.

The evening was finally rounded off by entertaining slam poetry, various performances, live music, exciting conversations and lots of food and drinks.

Press release, Feb 2017

New York – Röthlisberger announced today plans to expand operations to the West Coast, establishing an office in Greater Seattle in response to the booming Pacific Northwest design market and customer demands for high-end custom interiors throughout Washington and California.

Röthlisberger, comprehensive supplier of luxury interiors renowned for its work with some of the world’s most prestigious architects, is expected to open its first West Coast office on the Kitsap Peninsula in Spring 2017.

Röthlisberger Seattle will boost the company’s ability to deliver on the planning, production and installation of complex custom interior engineering projects, ranging from private residences to luxury retail spaces, high-end commercial buildings, private jets and luxury yachts. In addition to custom interiors and millwork, the company also produces its own range of designer furniture. The Seattle office is expected to specialize in consulting services for architects and owner representatives.

Mark Röthlisberger, Director of Operations said:

“From Switzerland to London, NYC to Tokyo, Röthlisberger is a trusted partner to clients and architects around the globe, including Foster + Partners, John Pawson and Peter Marino Architect. Each custom project is a testament to the finest in Swiss quality and our commitment to delivering engineering that supports beautiful, one-of-a-kind design.

Röthlisberger’s expansion to the West Coast will enable us to better serve clients in the Seattle and San Francisco areas specifically—clients who are looking for exceptional quality and service and have exacting expectations around innovation, design and environmental sustainability.”

Headquartered in Switzerland, Röthlisberger is a fourth generation family business. The company has earned a worldwide reputation for using the latest technology and materials to deliver custom interior solutions that others have deemed ‘impossible’. Röthlisberger Seattle will mark the company’s second location in the United States, following Röthlisberger NYC.

The Seattle office is slated to be led by Marcel Imbach, a six year veteran of Röthlisberger and Managing Director of Röthlisberger NYC. Imbach’s role in NYC will be replaced by Alan Bodmer as of May 2017.

This is a further commitment to the production location that is Switzerland and to sustainable operational management. More information is given under “Our values”.
