Simplon Pass - Decorative Metal Sign - 26x40
One of the rare mountain passes at over 2000m above sea level which is open in middle of winter, often bordered by high walls of snow. The long and smooth road rises imperceptibly through a succession of tunnels, covered galleries and large bridges.
In 1801, during the construction of the Simplon road, Napoleon ordered the establishment of a hospice at the top of the pass, which could also serve as a barracks.
Today, the renovated and modernized building is open all year and can accommodate up to 130 people. The artwork is a nod to the movie Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson.
Our Swiss made collection is inspired of the classic enamel metal signs used for ads back in the days. Make any room feel like home with beautiful wall decor from Atelier WOCS. Whether you hang them in the office or living room, our metal wall signs in tribute to the Swiss Alps were made to inspire and to awaken your inner wanderer.
