What’s new at SwitzerCultCreative – April 2013

Last November we announced the First place winner from our first annual SwitzerCultCreative Design Competition.  Since then we have been hard at work in collaboration with the designer, Dmitry Kozinenko putting together a cohesive collection based on his entry.

Allan and I are thrilled to be involved with Dmitry developing his collection, which is in the first phases of prototyping now.

Here are the images of his winning designs.  We are excited to be working with local craftsmen to develop the collection and bring it to the international market.  What will it look like when complete – that is going to be our surprise.  Stay tuned.

“Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative” furniture collection launches today

Douglas Coupland is a Canadian novelist, visual artist and designer. His first novel in 1991 was Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture. He has published thirteen novels, a collection of short stories, seven nonfiction books, and a number of dramatic works and screenplays for film and television.  Coupland’s novels and visual work synthesize high and low culture, web technology, religion, and changes in human existence caused by modern technologies.

“The Collection you will see here is a reflection of everything I use daily.  These are pieces that would unleash a universe of creativity, dopamine, high style and timelessness into their user’s world.  The desk I write on every day is an escritoire.  My escritoire is Japanese lacquer colored.  Every time I see its lush, civilized richness my brain releases a small hit of dopamine, which in turn makes me want to write more.  It’s a successful feedback loop”. “But mostly I like escritoires because they exist purely for writing and nothing else.  Their very existence is about the civilized creation of words, whether by ink or by electrons.”
