For the second year, London-based Swiss designer Mathias Clottu has organised the presentation of the exhibition at umlaut¨ space as well as an evening of talks at Istituto Marangoni on the 30 November.
Mathias Clottu is a Swiss designer based in London. Since 2011 he has been handling text and images with John Morgan. In January 2016 he established a studio in East London, and now develops his work in collaboration with cultural institutions and individuals. He regularly teaches in Switzerland.
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.
