We designed a new meeting room for Sir Mary, one of Switzerland's leading agencies. The room is colored entirely in gray, creating an incredibly immersive atmosphere. A 6.6 meter long meeting table is crowned by a custom-made light installation consisting of five manually curved light strips that can change colors.

GALLERY X ARCHIVE | interior architecture | Fotostiftung Schweiz | 2022

The Fotostiftung Schweiz is embarking on an innovative architectural venture, expanding its premises to incorporate a new exhibition area and an open archive space devoted to the processing, research, and digitization of its collection holdings. Architects Silvia Baumgartner and Simon Husslein seamlessly merged the two zones, creating a striking floor-to-ceiling glass door that provides an unprecedented view into the foundation's inner workings. By showcasing the multiple steps a photograph undergoes from archival storage to public presentation, the installation offers an enlightening behind-the-scenes glimpse into the foundation's conservation and curatorial practices, a novel addition to the exhibition landscape.

REFUGE TONNEAU 21 | pavillon | HEAD – Genève | 2021

REFUGE TONNEAU 21 was developed as a tribute to the iconic Refuge Tonneau by Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret from 1938. The pavilion serves as a place to meet on the school campus. Central stairs are placed inside a colourful interior with a playful pattern of circular windows. Solar panels on the roof power a ceiling light installation displaying the names Charlotte and Pierre. The installation was first shown at the OPEN HOUSE exhibition in Genthod/ Geneva in 2021.

We designed the new office for SiR MaRY, who has been awarded as Switzerland's “digital agency of the year’. The workplaces are arranged around a custom made, nine meter long office table with integrated storage spaces. The room is lit by a 12 meter long LED light strip that forms the agencies logo. For small meetings in the main room we built a free standing tete-a-tete cube, that is completely covered by a copper mesh to minimize the reception of electromagnetic waves including Wifi and mobile phone signals, suggesting a very analogue use of the space. The main meeting room is colored entirely brown with carpet reaching up to its ceiling, containing a central meeting table with gold-plated table top.
