Heads behind


The Ruckstuhl manufactory was founded in 1881 in Langenthal, Switzerland. Since its beginnings, the company has processed renewable raw materials into long-lasting carpets with craftsmanship and dedication. The inventive spirit and intuition with which Ruckstuhl combines traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technologies have earned Ruckstuhl a worldwide reputation in the architecture and design scene. The natural fibres used by Ruckstuhl are precious raw materials taken from living nature. To this day, Ruckstuhl therefore struggles for ecological consistency and engages intensively with this topic – from the generation of ideas to the end of the cycle.

The Swiss architect and designer combines creativity with strategy to support companies and people with their transformation.

With his innovative concepts he strives to help brands and individuals move into a sustainable future in a self-determined and graceful way. His vision is a world in which people, nature and objects are in balance.


World of Pi

No circle without pi. The number pi is also a symbol of infinity. World of Pi is a climate tech start-up from Zurich that aims to make the life cycle of products more sustainable. It was initiated by creative minds from the Swiss furniture and design world.

The start-up develops innovative product apps that are linked to the products via a QR code or chip in order to promote, simplify and reward circular interaction with them.
