From September 17 to 20, Design Days will take over the Sicli pavilion in Geneva. Gathering design enthusiasts, the show will exhibit all aspects of contemporary creation. From ceramic design to wooden creation and innovative lightning technology, the 7th edition brings its share of surprises and discoveries.
As part of the organisation team, I’m delighted to present you here a sneak preview of this major event in Switzerland.Designers and artists will showcase their latest creations, may it be a limited edition or small series such as the concrete acoustic mirror by Sulyemianie Associati or the clown nose, born of the collaboration between Tomas Kral and Peter Fink.
With a lot of special guests, conferences and design talks will enliven the show. Organised in collaboration with the HEAD – Genève, lectures will be hold by international designers such as Sebastian Bergne, Saskia Diez and Jerszy Seymour. On top, two design talks on modularity and independent design publishers will complete the program.
Last but not least, galleries and showrooms spread throughout the city will organise special events during this long weekend. Among others, the Arcadia showroom will exhibit the iconic pieces by the Italian architect and designer Vico Magistretti.

I hope to see you there.
