What do you find fascinating about the ZHdK?
The ZHdK is an exciting place for me, a place where culture is created and conceived. You can catch a glimpse of the future here and learn how society will change and in which areas something new is being developed.
What does a typical working day involve for you?
I try to stay up-to-date as much as possible and keep an overview of the initiatives and projects at the Department of Design. The design-specific content at the ZHdK provides very relevant material for the public image of the entire university.
Where at the ZHdK can you be found?
I enjoy taking a break at Chez Toni or Mehrspur – they definitely do the best coffee!
Which topics are you focussing on at the moment?
As a result of the current situation, the concepts of «New Work» and digital nomadism are currently on my mind. I’m interested in how digitalisation changes the idea of work in today’s society – especially in Switzerland.
Who would you like to work with one day?
Some time ago (I think the last time was in 2016), the programme «Observer in Residence» was run at the ZHdK. The «Observer in Residence» interviewed different people at the ZHdK about «online» and «offline» culture. I’d like to take that up again and invite the author Sascha Lobo from Germany.
What is your favourite design object?
As I’m a passionate cyclist in my spare time, it has to be: the bicycle. I’ve gradually acquired six bicycles and could expand my collection any time.
