— An evening for the classic
This poster is the result of the Typographic Summer Program with Swiss graphic designer and letterpress printer Dafi Kühne. Together with 7 other participants I spent two great weeks of experimenting, hand sketching, designing and letterpress printing a poster for a personally chosen fictional cultural event in the region of Näfels.
My event was about the locally produced horgenglarus chair: Since 1918 the classic of horgenglarus has been produced in Glarus and exported around the world. Chairs are part of our culture and daily life. They interact with human bodies, the room and objects around them. They connect people and memories. As the production of the classic celebrates it’s 103 year anniversary, 103 memories and stories from chairowners are brought back to Glarus, gathered, put together in a book and presented in an evening for the classic with an exhibition and talks in the yard of the horgenglarus manufactory.
