Hans Gugelot began to develop the M125 systemized furniture design during his years in Max Bill's office in 1950 for 'Wohnbedarf" Zürich.
The M125 was based on the module of 125mm and its multiples, like 250mm as the ideal depth for bookshelves and 1250 mm as the ideal width for a bed, a cabinet or shelves.
In 1956 he improved the M125 to be produced in large-scale production by Wilhelm Bofinger, a German furniture carpenter.
The production of M125 systemized furniture meant a big shift in the traditional furniture manufacturing process, since workers had to adapt to modern materials and new working conditions.
