Visitors are welcomed by a large luminescent cylinder.  The exhibition of the collection Schätti Leuchten illuminates the interior of a large cylindrical object. The shell, made from extremely thin Tyvek, functions as diffusor. Residual light penetrates outward and illuminates the immediate surroundings of the luminescent cylinder. The Schätti lamps on the inside act as a single, large light source. They exhibit the textile production machines enclosed by the cylinder. Visitors enter and leave via a set of stairs. The change in altitude results in a topographical adventure. The spatial experience offers visitors an overview of the whole collection. The presentation was given the Designers' Saturday Gold Award.
