Emerging Swiss design exhibitions are presented at the umlaut¨ gallery space on Fashion Street, off Brick Lane in London.
Emerging graphic design, product design, design theory and research, digital design and contemporary making are given a platform in a not-for-profit framework.
This initiative was taken to give the vibrant, innovative design movement in Switzerland a presence in the context of one of the world’s leading cultural cities, examining the scope of contemporary design questions and approaches, and establishing an intercultural dialogue between Swiss designers and the London public.
This series of design exhibitions is the result of a close collaboration between the Swiss Cultural Fund UK (SCF) and the British-Swiss marketing agency Blattler Ltd.
Gallery opening times: weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
Process and practice, rather than finished products, are the focus of Sarah Boris’s exhibition. She will present for the first time a body of screenprinted works and studies that inform her practice as a graphic designer and influence her process, with one work leading to another. By laying out the works for the exhibition plan, Sarah has started to develop a new body of work which will be visible in parallel to the exhibition space on social media (www.instagram.com/sarahboris_ldn). Visitors are invited to get in touch with questions on her design process by emailing Sarah at: email@example.com
