I’ve never heard of object posters but I instantly recognise the style. This one’s by Peter Birkhauser. He seemed to be rolling with Niklaus Stoecklin, Herbert Leupin & Donald Brun creating these highly detailed artworks that feel surrealistic, because of the bland objects that are depicted and the time period. (Surrealism often focused on the displacing everyday things, but I think these were just advertising products.)
