Design Days

Pavillon Sicli


The Design Days return for an 11th edition with a strong focus on Swiss creativity, young design, fashion and digital design.

Design Days is a cultural event around design and contemporary creation. It is the only platform in the French-speaking part of Switzerland that aims to stimulate collaboration and exchange and offers an opportunity for aspiring designers to get direct feedback from the public. In this sense, Design Days play an essential role and are the link between the school and the professional world.

The Design Days also organize free exhibitions and conferences, as well as an off-site itinerary. Design Days is organised by the magazine Espaces contemporains and the non-profit organisation Design Days, in partnership with Head-Genève and the Swiss Fashion Point.

Through its label Design Switzerland, Pro Helvetia will support a selection of young Swiss designers (up to seven years after graduation or within the first five to seven years of starting their own business) through booths or a matchmaking programme.

The studios will be chosen from among the participants in this call, open to all Swiss designers until 15 June 2019:
