For young design studios, the current situation due to the pandemic is far-reaching in many areas: international platforms and fairs are postponed or cancelled, where the most important business contacts are established. Collaborations with potential industry partners are terminat-ed or suspended. For these reasons, Pro Helvetia is organising «Design Switzerland Matchbox: Industry Connect», a call for participation for emerging talents in the field product or textile de-sign.
Call for applications
«Design Switzerland Matchbox: Industry Connect»
Up to 8 selected Swiss designers or studios will have the opportunity to join pitch trainings and presentational skill-trainings by international coaches, to produce a video presentation of their project together with a studio and attend professionally organised online-meetings with hand-picked potential partners from the industry.
