The design studio Panter&Tourron is exploring the intersections of technology, design and society to design a new vision of luxury for tomorrow.

When the lives of Stefano Panterotto and Alexis Tourron were constantly on the move, they needed ultralight and flat-packed furniture. Now Panter&Tourron is based in Switzerland and with «Tense» they produced five furniture pieces – a lounge chair, a room divider, a ceiling lamp, an ambient lamp, and a low table – fitting the needs of a nomadic generation. The design collection doesn’t need any tools or screws to be assembled, making it fast to build and disassemble. With their innovative materials and digital production techniques, they approach a sustainable and flexible fabrication.


Under the label Design Switzerland, Pro Helvetia organizes a tailor-made matchmaking programme for a selection of young Swiss design studios during 3daysofdesign, Denmark’s leading annual design event, from 23 to 25 May 2019.
This year, the 3 selected studios are product designers Panter&Tourron, Swiss Fashion brand WEER, and culinary experience & tableware design studio Raphael Lutz. By accompanying these young talents, Pro Helvetia aims to help them reach potential business partners in the Nordic region.

Furthermore, Panter&Tourron will be part of the exhibition «REFRESH» (22 to 25 May 2019) curated by the Department Design of Zurich University of the Arts and hosted by Space10 in Copenhagen.
