Back to savoir-vivre!

Our world is becom­ing increas­ing­ly com­plex and con­tin­ues to change faster than ever before. But our basic human needs stay the same. Pro­tec­tion is one of them, as are emo­tion­al warmth and sus­tain­abil­i­ty.
The greater every­day chal­lenges become, the stronger grows our yearn­ing for a safe haven. It is not with­out rea­son that more and more peo­ple, espe­cial­ly in roil­ing urban cen­tres, are turn­ing to authen­tic ways of life that pro­vide secu­ri­ty and sta­bil­i­ty. There is where the Stube, or par­lour, comes in, the heart of free and infor­mal togeth­er­ness; and the alpine chalet, the name of which comes from the Latin word cala, mean­ing “a pro­tect­ed place”. stuben21 sees the chalet as a sym­bol of new lux­u­ry, of sim­plic­i­ty and dura­bil­i­ty, aris­ing from uni­ver­sal human trust, a sym­bol of the freely devel­oped art of life and depend­abil­i­ty through ever-chang­ing eras. In the 19th cen­tu­ry, the nobil­i­ty and upper class­es dis­cov­ered the chalets of the French and Swiss Alps. Now, it is time to rein­ter­pret the con­cept of the chalet for mod­ern liv­ing.
For stuben21, this is about com­fort with an urban aes­thet­ic: fine nat­ur­al mate­ri­als craft­ed to per­fec­tion to con­vey time­less and ele­gant sim­plic­i­ty. The facil­i­ties are of the very lat­est tech­nol­o­gy, ensur­ing max­i­mum func­tion­al­i­ty. Last but not least, the stuben21:urban chalet con­nects with the trend towards small, com­pact and mul­ti­func­tion­al liv­ing units that effort­less­ly accom­mo­date a wide vari­ety of dif­fer­ent liv­ing sit­u­a­tions and meet the demands of mod­ern city life almost per­fect­ly. If less is more, small is huge.
