Haworth and Cappellini Set to Unveil New Brand Collaboration in Zurich

by Lucia Walker | May 29, 2017

Premiere: On the 29th of June, 2017 global furniture brands Haworth and Cappellini will open a new dual-brand showroom experience in the heart of Zurich.

The showroom concept, designed by architect Patricia Urquiola, will explore the future of work through a collection of inspiring products and unique design collaborations. The space is designed as a destination for Zurich’s busy professionals to visit and explore new ways of working and the world of contract design. Both brands will also introduce new products that seek to blur the boundaries between work and play, between residential and business environments.

Giulio Cappellini, the company’s namesake, and Patricia Urquiola will welcome guests to the showroom and share their perspective on design trends and the ever-changing world of work.
