Design, art, style, culture, food and brilliant stupidity.
A thematic collection of Armand Schulthess‘ lifework.
‘Armand Schulthess hung more than 1,000 inscribed panels in the trees and bushes of the 18,000 square meters of his chestnut woods in the Onsernone Valley in Ticino. Over a period of more than twenty years he transformed the woods into a philosophical garden that chronicled human knowledge and arranged it encyclopedically.
The publication of his work documents the garden, shows the house interior and for the first time provides a comprehensive view of the selfmade books on sexuality. This presentation and precise description finally opens up the obsessive universe of Armand Schulthess so that it can be understood, allowing for meaningful connections to be made between the garden, house and self-made books.’
