Geneva's first 20th century design fair, Le Salon du Design, is coming back for a third edition.
This year, the participating shops and galleries will be highlighting 100 years of design history. We expect the Le Salon du Design to be quite an experience as it showcases on postmodern furniture, Bauhaus styles, Scandinavian design and vintage design from Switzerland, Italy and France. Visitors will have the chance to step through time and space in this exhibit that places quality over quantity.
One of the highlights will surely be the fiberglass shells made famous by Charles and Ray Eames. But we are also excited about the exhibition featuring (and selling) the most iconic productions of Swiss design.
The organic architecture of the Pavillon Sicli, designed in the 1960s by Heinz Isler, offers the ideal setting for authentic pieces from the 1920s to 1985. Swiss and international dealers are holding their most beautiful finds for the visitors of Le Salon du Design in Geneva as a preview of the major European events that will be held later on.
Tickets are 5 francs for those above 12 years of age. The exhibit is open as follows: Sat from 10 AM to 8 PM, Sun from 10 AM to 6 PM.
