Focus: Swiss Design

An introduction by neue räume

Swiss furniture design has a long tradition. Embru, de Sede, Röthlisberger, Thut, USM or Wogg – many Swiss manufacturers have made a name for themselves and have produced many classics. Numerous Swiss designers have made their mark across the globe; from Hans Coray and Alfredo Häberli to Hannes Wettstein, atelier oï and Jörg Boner. Additionally, young Swiss design has been on the rise. For these reasons (and more) this year’s neue räume is focussing on Swiss design. On the one hand, many Swiss manufacturers will use the exhibition to present themselves and their latest products. On the other hand, some of the special shows will be focussing on Switzerland: 


The CH-Group

Once again, renowned Swiss manufacturers present their products under the ‘swiss made’ label. The 2013 show is larger than ever before and will include innovative yet usable and useful products of the highest manufacturing standards. The global ranking of Swiss design becomes immediately obvious when looking at the names included in the CH-Group: all 13 companies belong to the best that Swiss manufacturing has to offer. Designer Benjamin Thut is responsible for the Group’s exhibition design. At the ABB Hall, the Group will show their latest products alongside classic pieces and bestsellers.

Exhibitors include: Adeco, Arber, Baltensweiler, Création Baumann, Embru, IGN, Das Konzept, Lehni, Mox, Röthlisberger, Seleform, Thut and Tossa.


Designer’s Designs: Swiss Prototypes

The show ‘Designer’s Designs’, curated by designer Hanspeter Weidmann, will also focus on Switzerland as a design nation. It includes new designs by Thai Hua, Charles O. Job, Benny Mosimann, Hanspeter Weidmann, Robert Wettstein and Stefan Zwicky that will be revealed to the public for the first time in the form of prototypes.


Young Labels: The Next Generation

For the third time, neue räume will provide a dedicated space to showcase young talent. However, the young designers and manufacturers shown in the Young Labels show are not total newcomers: extending over 250m2 of floor space in the ABB Hall, the Young Label show will present names you are sure to hear a lot more from in the future. Visitors can look forward to a versatile range of promising and unexpected products by the following Swiss designers and manufacturers: Andreas Bechtiger, blueroom, eigenmannDUROT, Fabian Schwaerzler, fries+Zumbühl, Heidi Mattmann, Home3, Klotzholz, minimöbl, Steve Lechot, Strala, Thismade and Wooom. The show also includes Raumfieber from Germany and Georg Bechter Licht from Austria.

Form Forum: Select

Form Forum Schweiz will show a selection of outstanding products conceived and produced by its members. At neue räume 13, the association will present products from the areas of furniture design, product design, ceramics, textiles, paper, jewellery, metal, glass and wood. Form Forum is dedicated to promoting contemporary and experimental design. The association supports its members in their activities, in developing their design skills and through cooperating with organisations such as neue räume, the association extends its members’ presence in the marketplace.

More special shows

Light: From Candles to LEDs

With reference to the rapid development of new luminaires, neue räume will present a special exhibition with the theme of ‘light’. Forming the heart of the special show, the exhibition ‘From Candles to LEDs’ chronicles more than 100 years of lighting design. Right next to it, professional lighting designers will share information on the latest technologies and trends. Furthermore, renowned national and international lighting manufacturers such as Artemide, Catellani & Smith, Delta Light, Fontana Arte, Lumina and ModoLuce will present their latest collections and bestsellers.

Interaction: Craftsmanship

Six companies will present their special manufacturing processes, together with the resulting exclusive products in the ABB Hall. The exhibition islands will focus on manual processes, thus highlighting the products’ quality and individual character.
Visitors will have a chance to experience the Shibori technique (Suzusan,
Japan), pottery (Linck Keramik, Switzerland), wall papering (Atelier Le Coq, Switzerland), woodturning and wickerwork (Fratelli Levaggi, Italy), metal working (Labvert, Austria), bentwood manufacture (Thonet, Germany) and wood processing (Röthlisberger, Switzerland).



A Sky full of Shooting Stars at atelier oï

Assembling its latest products in a sensual and inviting setting, the internationally renowned trio atelier oï presents a show inspired by nomads, starry skies and the Far East. The savoir-faire of high-end craftsmanship is transferred into our modern times by using a fabric from Moroso’s 'Oasis' collection which playfully meanders around atelier oï’s new lighting collection Stelle Filanti for Venini. The lights’ delicate appearance forms a subtle contrast to the lavishly decorated space. Known for its trans-disciplinary projects, atelier oï (Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond) already attracted a great deal of attention at neue räume 11, where the group presented a flexible light sculpture as part of its 'Oïphorique' show.

neue räume in the city: Design in the Centre of Zurich

For the second time, the centre of Zurich will host the neue räume in the city initiative: around 20 selected shops from areas other than interior design, as well as cafés, bars and restaurants will show furniture, lighting and textiles by international manufacturers. The interior design objects will be showcased in shops, in windows, cafés, lounges, in courtyards and in further, rather unusual locations.
