  Max Bill in his studio in Zürich-Höngg with
  stamp design presentation, in 1935
  Photograph by Binia Bill found on page 42 of
  Max Bill: Typography, Advertising, Book Design

  As far as I can tell, this stamp design was never issued.
  The design is far ahead of its time for Swiss stamps
  of that period, as most Swiss stamps at that time
  featured engraved portraits and landscapes.

Max Bill (1908–1994) was a Swiss architect, artist, painter, typeface designer, industrial designer, and graphic designer. A student of the Bauhaus, he was a cofounder (with Otl Aicher) of the Ulm School of Design. Learn more about his work here.
