a complete range in household settings. from a clip which provides a distinct source for accent lighting to the traditional pendant, floor, wall and ceiling lamps,

in its fourteenth edition, the designers’ saturday biennial shut down six large factories in the swiss town of langenthal
to feature the spaces where products are actually manufactured and finalized. within these atmospheric production sites,
venues and exhibition zones were established, acting as a backdrop for the various projects on show.
