Swiss Design — Zurich Made
Zurich Made: Emerging Talents from the Department Design, Zurich University of the Arts
Over three days (May 24 – 26, 2018), selected projects by emerging talents from the Department Design at Zurich University of the Arts will take part in 3DaysofDesign at the Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen. These projects explore the boundaries of contemporary design creation, and the exhibits probe into new technologies, questions of interactivity and participation, radical forms of communication and positions concerning the sustainability of design. All projects are characterized by a spirit of innovation and experimentation, a thirst for research, visual originality and cultural entrepreneurship. The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive programme of events: workshops and talks will provide insights into design processes and give visitors the opportunity to become actively involved. The Zurich bagmanufacturer FREITAG will be represented by a bag designer: the workshop highlight «Live F-Cut» offers the participants the opportunity to cut out their own unique FREITAG-Bag creations using templates and cutters. Experts participating in the talks include Markus Freitag, Founder and Creative Director of FREITAG. The talks are chaired by Swiss Culture Radio livingroom.fm which will broadcast live from Copenhagen for the duration of the 3DaysofDesign.
Zurich Made: Emerging Talents from the Department Design, Zurich University of the Arts, a project promoting young-and-upcoming talent, receives comprehensive support from the Swiss Embassy in Copenhagen and the Department Design at Zurich University of the Arts. On the evening of May 24, 2018, Business and Economic Development Division Zurich in cooperation with Zurich tourism will host a reception in the assembly hall and take part in the launch of the talk programme at the same venue.
