Extremely rare poster designed by Walter Cyliax in 1930, announcing the opening of the Simmen Möbel furniture store in Zürich. Cyliax borrowed lowercase lettering, obvious asymetry and overprinting from the avant-garde. The image imitates a photograph but is actually a drawing printed in lithography in 2 colors. This poster was selected for the Swiss graphic design exhibition of Zurich in 2006. Reference: The origins and growth of an international style, By RIchard Hollis, 2006
