Swiss Touch@The Mall

Washington D.C.

June 15, 2017

Mid-May, the Swiss Touch table could be admired on the National Mall. Ambassador Martin Dahinden invited passersby to sit down at the table and ask questions about Switzerland. The setting and the delightful and chilly weather that Monday morning allowed for a burst of creativity and the questions covered a large variety of fields ranging from innovation to chocolate, as well as foreign policy and education.

How can the collaboration between industrial designers and artisans open new opportunities, as well as contribute to sustainable livelihoods? This panel discussion presented the experience of international residency program Hors Pistes whose young Swiss and French designers worked with local artisans based in Burkina Faso. The Swiss government’s expertise in promoting craftsmanship in Burkina Faso through vocational training as well as Cooper Hewitt’s role in advancing the public understanding of international design allowed for a lively discussion.

The very first Swiss Touch discussion took place on the morning of January 17 in Zermatt. Swiss observers and experts sat at the table in a unique scenery to discuss climate change and its effect on glaciers.
