Swiss Design - スイスデザイン展


I went to Tokyo Opera City to see the Swissdesign Exhibition. It displayed the products and their history of leading Swiss brands such as Bally, Timex and Vitronix where you could confirm the clean-room-like modern design style that characterized "Swiss". Swissair and Swiss Rail basically showed their old posters. I somewhat doubted if this was appropriate as a paid exhibition considering its size and contents because it was more like a commercial display in a package, but the collection related to Le Corbusier in the end might allow it calling an art exhibition. No photos allowed except two displays in the entrance area, one of which was "Katagami Installation" by the Lucerne University of Application Science and Art, a beautiful space with light and mono tone.
