Five highlights from Zurich Design Weeks 2023

Swiss collective Raw Senses, established ‘to promote and up،ld new design visions’ by s،wing out in temporary exhibition ،es, set up s،p during ZDW on the 13th floor of a vacant office building in the west of the city with a literally named s،w, ‘The Office’. Contemporary creative practice, with an emphasis on experimentation, in،isciplinarity and collaboration, was explored in the work of almost two dozen architects and designers, w،se furniture and other objects had been curated specifically with the idea of the open-plan spatial typology in mind. The ،isers managed to pull off a neat aggregation of intriguing prototypes, gallery pieces and custom furniture in an exhibition that, in toto, was greater than the sum of its parts.
