The Tessanda foundation

In the Tessanda hand weaving mill – the oldest one in Switzerland – an all-women team of professional weavers continue to produce textiles using traditional methods today. And ever since Maya Repele took the reins of the mill, the cultural heritage site in Santa Maria Val Müstair has flourished. And now a long-time dream of the Tessanda weavers is about to come true: they are going to get more space. Pritzker Prize winner Peter Zumthor will build the mill’s new workshops.

In conversation with Erika Gideon-Wyler

At 90 years old, her calendar is still packed with appointments every day. Drawing on a full life as an entrepreneur and philanthropist, she is a natural collaborator, continues to educate herself, and is always learning new things – and making them possible. At the moment, that is especially true for her work at the Manja Gideon Foundation. We wanted find out from her: How does one learn to embrace change? And how can you live by your convictions?

Strategically moving towards net zero

Sustainability has become a major intergenerational concern. The word itself highlights how we should be supporting one another as a society, thinking about the long-term management of our economy and taking special care of our environment and resources in the process. Switzerland’s Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics (BBL), the contracting authority of Building D, is following a jointly defined approach – developed under the leadership of Vera Kämpfen.

Ringel - the founder and the brand

We saved the good news for spring. Stephanie Ringel Media, founded in 2013, has given itself a new face: with a revamped corporate design and brand new website. To be completely honest, I had discarded the idea of being self-employed for some time.

Swiss design culture and the key visual of the Salone del Mobile 2023

In mid-January 2023, the largest furniture show in the world, the Salone del Mobile, presented its new communication campaign for this year. When we looked at the posters, we thought immediately of a project that we carried out for the Swiss company Wogg in 2021: a new blend of narrative format and visual communication. Five subjects were chosen and became the protagonists of a storytelling campaign for Wogg before the rollout of their new collection.

A shop window into Swiss design

As official meeting places within the respective host country, Switzerland’s diplomatic missions abroad also represent the Confederation’s creative output. Many such buildings and their interiors were and are designed by Swiss architects and designers. The Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics (BBL), which is responsible for diplomatic mission construction projects, wants Switzerland’s physical presence abroad to emanate values such as innovation, precision, quality and open-mindedness.

Forever on the cutting-edge

The Wogg collection is a steadily growing assortment of strong individual pieces that could hardly be more different from one another. United by their simplicity and sophistication, and untethered by modernity or fashion, the stand-alone pieces give off an air of casual wordly elegance.

Seeing dementia in a new light

First you can read a short story and find out what Miss Becker has to say. Afterwards, you can cover the postcard in your own writing, send it off and in doing so share something about dementia with others. Poetically and honestly. After all, who only wants to get postcards with artwork or mountain landscapes on them?!
