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.
Illustration is the extension of literature through images. The creators of prize-winning Swiss Comic Art Magazine ‘Ampel’, in collaboration with Lucerne University’s Illustration Department, will ship an illustration studio complete with artists to London and will create part of the exhibition in situ. Expect on-the-spot drawing, local narratives, neighbourhood participation, street art and visual conversation, as part of the live process of creating and editing a comic zine.
