Design Switzerland

Discover our online platform


A new online platform addressed to the design industry in Switzerland

«Design Switzerland»
Swiss design stands for innovation, quality, longevity and intelligent execution. To raise awareness of the presence of Swiss delegations at international design events and to provide information about the Swiss design scene in general, Pro Helvetia launched «Design Switzerland» with an associated website in September 2018.

Promoting Swiss design
Pro Helvetia promotes design in all its different facets: «From drawing board and reflection to market.» Aesthetic, cultural and social criteria are all taken into consideration, as is the positioning of a design project with regard to market, industry and innovation. Projects with a strong focus on reflection about design are fostered in the context of visual arts. Pro Helvetia supports related exhibitions, biennials, knowledge exchange, publications and residencies in Switzerland and abroad.

You can also follow Design Switzerland on Instagram.
