“Neue Räume” will be turning Zurich in the place to be for all design aficionados.
Taking place each odd-numbered year, the “neue räume” design platform is regarded internationally as both an important presentation forum and a unique meeting place for manufacturers, designers and design lovers alike. In addition to the design discourse represented in several special shows, the exhibition will once again have many new products and design highlights in store. Visitors can register in a specialist retailers’ lounge to benefit from discounts of up to 750 CHF by many Swiss furniture retailers.
The accompanying programme includes the Moving Walls installation by Jörg Boner, the Hiver Japonais surprise-installation by atelier oï, as well as an exhibition by Höhere Fachschule für Technik und Gestaltung Zug in collaboration with Horenglarus, which takes an artistic approach to the chair as an object. Additionally German architectural lighting manufactuer' Apure will showcase its revolutionary lines, designed by Porsche Design Studio. As has been the case in the last few years, young design talent will be given a prominent stage to present their work, with the “young labels” special show having established itself as a fixed part of the programme. As usual, the “neue räume in the city” special show will be distributed over shops, shop windows, cafés, lounges and courtyards located in the centre of Zurich. No doubt: in November 2017, design will be shown in all its many facets and will thus become accessible to a wide audience.
