More information on the Design Days


The 11th edition of the Design Days will take place from 26 to 29 September 2019 in Geneva, with a strong focus on Swiss creativity, young design, fashion and digital design.

This year, Pro Helvetia supports seven swiss designers, selected among the participants to an open call, who will present their work during the event. Among them, jewelry designer Felix Doll.

Founded in 2015 in Zurich, Felix Doll offers unique, genderless and minimalist pieces of contemporary jewelry, reflecting a passionate love for clarity while following the principles of fair trade values. The designer fashions original works of art that inspire a sensual experience evoked by the corporeality of the materials.  His uncompromising pursuit of a purist design language and his ambition to create unique sustainable pieces far removed from the mass production of the fashion regarding design and craft, turning his name into a coveted brand that reinterprets the concept of luxury in an utterly new way.

The German designer Felix Doll earned his Fashion Design degree from Berlin Weissensee School of Art and spent part of his academic education at École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris. He worked with renowned fashion designers Ann Demeulemeester, Haider Ackermann, and Yohji Yamamoto.
