Icons Made in Switzerland

Design products are often short-lived consumption boosters. “Swiss Made” products, however, sell because of their timeless design, often influenced by the ideas of the Bauhaus, and their excellent quality – whether watches, furniture, or even typefaces. They are the result of a design attitude that has shaped Swiss everyday culture since the 20th century until today. In addition to functionality, the designers always thought about precision and reliability, and made the products suitable for the world market.
The international success of the 50 design icons with the Swiss seal of origin presented in this publication is based on credibility. They are introduced by texts on their creation and evolution as well as a portrait of the respective designer/brand, they bear witness to the spirit of Swiss design work. Swiss Design not only reflects the success of individual companies, but also a social consensus.
