Michael Mettler was born in 1970 in St. Gallen, Switzerland. In 1990 he started with his architecture studies in New York at the Cornell University and the ETH Zurich where he graduated with a diploma in 1997.
First, Mettler started to work in the offices of Herzog and Meuron and Burkhalter Sumi architectes. Since 2000, Mettler has his own company in Zurich.
Mettler’s creation of the maude bed was more a surprising hazard than a planned conception. A friend of Mettler asked him to design a double bed and Mettler came with a creation of a multifunctional sleeping furniture which consists of high quality materials. Furthermore, because of the reduced design, the maude bed impresses just by its beauty.
