SWISS ❤ DESIGN – Review
More about the design stuidos
Six Swiss design studios were present at this year’s Salone del Mobile from 17 to 22 April in Milan under the SWISS ❤ DESIGN banner: Diiis design studio (Liestal), Egli Studio (Renens), Florian Hauswirth (Biel), Kollektiv vier (Basel), Alain Schibli (Aarau) and schoenstaub (Zurich). Their design creations were showcased in the Copper Room and in the garden of Palazzo Litta in the centre of Milan. The exhibition’s scenography was produced by «bureau sacha von der potter» from Geneva, who created a counterpoint to the baroque pallazo setting with pop-style summer motives. Audiences were also able to appraise fashion designer Rafael Kouto’s latest collection at Superstudio.
The video from Milan offers a review of Switzerland’s presence at the world-famous furniture trade fair and insights into some of the results of Pro Helvetia’s design promotion programme.
