The exhibition concept plays with the myths of Swiss design, strengthens them and questions them at the same time. On the one hand, a design that moves very close to function gets illuminated. Reduced in expression, concentrated in detail. Protestant. On the other hand, the marionettes by Sophie Taeuber-Arp and the carpet by Christoph Hefti create a contrast. Not only do they have an inherent narrative quality, they are also characterised by subversion as an attitude. Like a temporal bracket, they hold the myth of Swiss design together and at the same time explode it.
