Mind the Gap entrance furniture demand little space and fit perfectly in an entrance. The boxes respond to different actions in the entrance, and make a composition of visible and hidden spaces. Really charming!
To continue in my new series Design in Switzerland I would like to introduce you in the work of ALEXIS GEORGACOPOULOS. If this name sounds 'strange' for you, yes, origin it's a Greece name. Born in Athen, he now lives and works in Lausanne, the French part of Switzerland. He practices in his own design studio and heads the Master studies in industrial design at the ECAL.
I‘m deeply involved in the Swiss Design scene, but the majority of my readers are not Swiss... But hey, we have so much great design in Switzerland! So, I thought it would be great to share some current products or concepts every week, DESIGN IN SWITZERLAND. Here we go, next week more.... (And yes, if you are a Swiss Designer, you can contact me!)
Sandra Kaufmann is the designer behind the Strada del Sole sunglasses collection. Founded 2007 in Zurich, entirely swiss made, this brand is absolutely spectacular! Strada Del Sole frames are build in a completely different manner, you can fold the temples right against the lenses which makes them small enough to put into your pocket. To switch between the two shapes, you just put pressure on the middle and end of the temples, and it will snap into place. Really smart, the Swiss answer to Ray Ban?!
How wonderful is the work of Katrin Rodegast (assistent by Sarah Illenberger)! Soft cover is a contemporary quilt, coated with a pattern of 270 illustrations observing the social reality. I'm not a big Quilt lover, but this transformation made me look!
