Disruptive drone lightings for entertainment, reinvented sportswear production, a design collective pushing the boundaries of LED lighting systems, and a nomadic workshop project bringing together contemporary designers and craftsmen from different cultures.

Under the label Design Switzerland, Pro Helvetia is presenting a selection of seven Swiss studios at London designjunction, the cutting-edge design festival located this year at some of the South Bank’s iconic industrial premises. By introducing these young design projects from Switzerland to London’s international scene, Pro Helvetia aims to facilitate business encounters and collaborations with the industry’s global players.

In addition to the exhibition at London designjunction, an indoor drone show by the Zurich-based studio Verity will be on display every day at Bloomsbury House.
