    ''Willy Guhl was an interior designer and designer and one of the main exponents of the Swiss neofunctionalism of the 20th century. His teaching at the Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich and its material and production related work, shaped and influenced a new generation of Swiss interior and product designers.  He creates many products with Fiber concrete, a material which is previously used for house building components. Guhl's interest in industrial manufacturing and new Production methods always brought him into contact with industry. He worked closely with Swiss companies such as Eternit, Röthlisberger, Aebi or Dietiker. His more famous designs include the shell chair Scobalit (1948-1951) and the hourglass- or diabolo-shaped planter Spindle (1951). In 1954, Guhl designs the Loop chair for Eternit, which despite low production costs Lightness combined with weight and robustness with elegance. The chair will enter immediately Mid-Century Classic and is its best-known design. Guhl was co-founder of the Association of Swiss Interior Architects (VSI) in 1943 and 1966 of the Association of Swiss Industrial Designers (SID).''
