Design Switzerland – Milano Fuorisalone 2019

Design Switzerland – Milano Fuorisalone 2019

Swiss Design takes center stage at Teatro Litta, the oldest theatre still in operation in Milan: the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is pleased to show a selection of young innovative studios under the label Design Switzerland. In a site-specific scenography by Geneva-based bureau sasha von der potter, visitors are invited to step on stage and enter a narrative universe in which young Swiss design takes the lead. A flight simulator, a kinetic clock that follows the sun, a sensor for the elderly, a robotic arm in action, an emergency window solution and furniture parts produced by electric induction: all the projects on display push the boundaries of design innovation. Whether through their mode of production, the sustainable use of materials, the response to societal challenges or the questioning of their function, the projects presented on the Design Switzerland scene reflect a society and a market in the making.


Selected studios for the Design Switzerland exhibition: AATB, Valentin Dubois, Matthieu Girel, Douma Guittet, Xénia Lucie Laffely, Bertille Laguet, Birdly®, Studio 5, Studio Ilio, Studio Porto, Reto Togni / Instant Windows Project
