Thirty or so exhibitors are selected from the experienced and serious gallery and shop owners, or online shops. The aim is to highlight 100 years of design history through authentic pieces from the 1920s to the 1985s. The third edition will unveil the periods and styles defended by the participating brands: Galleries specialized in postmodern furniture, Bauhaus, Scandinavian design, modern architects, Swiss, Italian and French design, or a unique collection of ceramics. There are also those who devote themselves to a single designer: Charles & Ray Eames, on the first floor and Pierre Paulin on the ground floor.

Swiss and international merchants are reserving their finest acquisitions at the Geneva Design Show as a preview of major European events that follow one another in autumn.


The dome of the Pavillon Sicli in Geneva is the ideal place for a quality fair dedicated to 20th-century design. Designed by Heinz Isler in the 1960s, the building is part of the city’s architectural heritage.

KISSTHEDESIGN, An Active Swiss Player in the Design Market

Corine Stübi is the organizer. Her passion for Design and furniture brings her to create crossroads between design lovers and great artists. Being the co-founder of kissthedesign in Lausanne, she felt there was a need for a more personal event, away from the over-dimensioned international design fairs. Design is about passion and we need places where passionate people can meet and share what they love.

Galerie Kissthedesign established in march 2010 in Avenue de Rumine 4 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The gallery quickly established itself as an influential player in the Swiss and international design scene and remains an important destination for collectors and enthusiasts.

The collection varies from mid-century design classics from Europe or America to exclusive pieces from well-known designers such as Eames, Saarinen, Charlotte Perriand, Guariche and Finn Juhl, or post-modernist creations from the Memphis group and Ettore Sottsass, and vintage furniture and lamps.

The Salon du Design quickly established itself as THE reference in French-speaking Switzerland for the most demanding collectors and design enthusiasts. Indeed, here no flea market, but original design signed by the greatest modern and postmodern designers. From the most cutting-edge pieces to the most famous icons from the 1930s to the 1980s, including vintage bargains.
