Czech design collective Okolo went to Lausanne, Switzerland to map the local design scene, talk to leading creators, discover hidden treasures of craftsmanship and reflect on the historical and artistic heritage of the area.
“The result is so far the most comprehensive publication of OKOLO to date describing not only the environment of the prestigious ECAL university, but also the unique design thinking of its former students and other designers working in the area around Lake Geneva.” says Okolo.
“In addition to the contemporary scene, we have not forgotten the modernist masters such as Alberto Sartoris, Le Corbusier, Jean Tschumi or forgotten organic architecture visionarist Daniel Grataloup.”
“In addition to the interviews and articles, there is also a report from the oldest watch manufacture in the world Vacheron Constantin, several curated editorials and much more. Magazine contributors include editor-in-chief of Pin-Up magazine Felix Burrichter, Neatherlands-based curator Matylda Krzykowski, Wallpaper architecture editor Ellie Stathaki, Czech photographer Tomáš Souček, Lausanne-based designer Adrien Rovero, Swiss writer Rebekka Kiesewetter and others.”
