After a tour of Japan, Form #1: FormSWISS is coming to Switzerland.
They are offering ECAL an immersion in the current Swiss graphic design practice. Dedicated to visual communication design, including graphic design, typography and motion design, the exhibition, curated by Japanese graphic designer Arata Maruyama, sheds light on the way of life and thinking of prestigious designers. Through the presentation of their work and a series of interviews with some thirty design studios, schools and museums in Switzerland, FormSWISS draws up an intergenerational panorama of designers working in French-speaking Switzerland, German-speaking Switzerland and Italian-speaking Switzerland. Furthermore, a book published by Arata’s design platform “Form” for the occasion also highlights this exceptional heritage.
Created by designer Arata Maruyama, founder of the Japanese studio &Form, the Form platform was designed to interactively promote various cultural values from a design perspective, both inside and outside Japan. Recognized for its extensive contribution to the development of contemporary design, Switzerland inspired this first exhibition, which was presented in several Japanese cities.
