The art of woodcarving began in the charming town of Brienz. Their magnificent creations continue to amaze connoisseurs and collectors from all over the world, making them precious keepsakes. The Brienz School, founded in the 19th century, continues to set the standard for the training of talented woodcarvers.

Brienz’s creations blend effortlessly with mountain surroundings, but the latest trend is to combine them with contemporary interiors. In a recent collaboration with renowned designer Philippe Starck, we have integ ated replicas of a 19th century armchair into several hotels in Switzerland and abroad, creating a unique blend of tradition and modernity.

We – the Moinat family – have a passion for this Swiss tradition and strive to offer pieces of, unrivalled quality in terms of carving, finish, colour and respect for the animal’s form. Each piece is carefully selected to assure a level of excellence. For us, the preservation of this precious Swiss tradition is a duty, and we are convinced that future generations will continue to appreciate this exceptional heritage.
