Adam Bellas joins SwitzerCultCreative

Adam Bellas



Grandson of Legendary Interior Designer, William Switzer, Joins New Family Business

Vancouver, BC (January 13, 2016) – After more than 15 years at William Switzer & Associates Ltd. – the world-renowned furnishing company his grandfather founded in 1952 – Adam Bellas has joined his mother, Renee Switzer, as partner and showroom manager at SwitzerCultCreative™.

Bellas brings his vast industry knowledge and passion for sophisticated and sustainable furniture to SwitzerCultCreative, a company that Renee Switzer established in 2012.

“Adam was practically born in his grandfather’s furniture showroom,” says Switzer. “I would bring him with me to work as a baby and he was raised around the world’s finest furniture. He developed a keen understanding and knowledge about interior design and, more importantly, making customers happy. Over the years, Adam has developed an outstanding reputation with suppliers and customers, and that’s why we are delighted to have him on the team.”

With Bellas’ appointment to the SwitzerCultCreative team, the company will soon launch its very first showroom, a place where people can touch and feel the elegant pieces.

“We are bringing new and exciting pieces that have not been available in this market before – everything from beautiful furniture, to lighting, fabrics and even accessories,” says Bellas. “And soon, with the new showroom, we’ll be able to tell customers – in person – how each piece was made, the quality of products used, the materials, and how it’s environmentally sustainable. That’s the SwitzerCultCreative commitment.”

Bellas credits his grandfather with his passion for furniture, and his mother for inspiring him to continue the family tradition. He says he can’t wait for what lies ahead as the next generation takes the lead on the showroom floor.

An official announcement on the opening of the brand new SwitzerCultCreative space will be made in the coming weeks. However, design enthusiasts can expect to see fabulous collections from designers the company exclusively represents, such as Sholto Scruton, Hagit Pincovici, Jason Klager, Eli Chissick, Ivan Meade, Fringe Studio, Sklo, and Se-London.

New Lighting Collection from Fred&Juul in Florence

SwitzerCultCreative™ is excited to announce the addition of Lighting to our home furnishings collections.

The first of several new lighting lines, Fred&Juul renew traditions by making customs and techniques reappear from the past while applying fine Italian craftsmanship to contemporary design. Founded by Italian-Dutch architects’ duo Federico Minarelli and Julie Janssen, the brand explores the possibilities of producing designs that are versatile and elegant while being exclusively handcrafted by local artisans from traditional materials like brass and solid wood. Fred&Juul’s design philosophy is aimed at sustainability and contrasting the throw-away society by creating pieces that will last, both for their exceptional quality and for their timeless appearance.

Introducing Hagit Pincovici


Hagit Pincovici

A story of three generations:

The whole story starts with Marcel, the grandfather who established a company named “Polycryl” in 1961, producing handmade plexiglass and simple daily objects. His son, Shimon, who developed the commercial relations with Europe and created a group of talented artisans, working in a well equipped atelier. Finally, we arrive to Hagit, the grandaughter. Born in 1978, when she was a child, she used to help the old Marcel fiddling around, grew up to become a designer and decided to push all these different experiences and knowledge into a complete design-based entrepreneurial adventure.

Hagit Pincovici
Born in Tel Aviv in 1978, living and working in Milan and Rome, Italy.
Pincovici graduated from the department of Industrial design at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem in 2005, and won a scholarship for upstanding achievements for her designs from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, Pincovici served as the design department’s director at the international lighting and furniture atelier “Aqua Creations LTD.” in Tel-Aviv, Israel for two years.

Since her graduation in excellence from the Design Management and Cultural Experience program at Domus Academy, she has been teaching at the Naba Design Academy in Milan. Her own work was also exhibited in the group exhibition at the Triennale during the “Salone del Mobile” in 2009.

In the past two years, she has been collaborating with major Italian companies such as “Colè” and “Miniforms” and her work is being featured in acclaimed industry-related publications such as “Interni”, “Domus”, “Frame”, “ElleDecor”, “Abitare”, “Forbes”.

Pincovici has been working on launching her new collection of unique furniture pieces, exclusively for the North American market, and has exhibited at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC, in May 2014 and 2015.
