Throughout the year 2014, Japan and Switzerland will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. In the wake of the first treaty of Amity and Commerce signed in 1864, the countries have built a long and lasting friendship. Among the several exhibitions and events that will commemorate this anniversary in both countries, the present exhibition will offer an emphasis on “150 years of Swiss Design - Craftsmanship and functional beauty”.
I created a picture printed on textile cloth. Playing with the idea of „classicism landscape" wallcovering , combining japanese and swiss sceneries, as well as Fauna and Flora and mixing it up with a touch of Painting and High Tech here and there.

In a former industrial site in Shanghai the Westbund Art & Design Fair
took place from September 25 to 29, 2014.
I was invited to present my textile art wall „Naturaleza“ together with a selection from the swiss design prize Langenthal and at the design forum I had a speech about textile design in different collaborations.
"The venue alone makes this show worthy of a visit. Just like the Yuz Museum next door, it’s a renovated hangar at the old Longhua Airport. Unlike its highly polished neighbor, however, this space is refreshingly rougher around the edges, retaining fascinating traces of its former function. It's an ideal venue for showing contemporary art: with high ceilings and big spaces."

Interiordesign -wallpaper and carpets - for Holzer Kobler Architekturen www.holzerkobler.com

I was invited to collaborate for the interior design part, from beginning on, from research to wallpapers and carpets. It was a very close cooperation with the owners and the architects of the cinema - over two years we developed the look and the images of the walls and floors. The design and idea grew together with the construction. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed doing it! The communication at beginning, the exchange of ideas, the research, and also the work in the Photo studio recreating movie scenes and atmospheres >> special thanks to all friends and family for volunteering and modeling! I played with characters, with scenes and also with the light and the projection of a movie theater.
I love going to the movies, already back as a design student; I volunteered at an independent movie theater, for free entrance ... please have a look
As part of the site development Rex Max Thun the fully refurbished Cinema Rex hosts five new cinema auditoriums with 1000 seats and a newly designed bar. The refurbishment replaces the original Cinema Rex which was built in the early 1950s
In terms of colors and materials the original Rex acted as source of inspiration: the color concept consists mainly of black, white and a spectrum of vivid red hues. High-gloss finishes, neon contours, rounded light fittings and illuminated, ornate lettering are taking visitors back to the times when the original establishment was set up.
Inspiration was also derived from the movies of the Cinema Noir era of the 1950s. The main structure in the foyer is surrounded by a unique carpet design which displays characteristic color inlays – an hommage to the classic cinema spotlights. The walls are highlighting subjects from well known movie scenes, shadow figures of famous movie stars are setting visitors off in the right mood for a visit to the cinema. Textile designer Claudia Caviezel recreated these famous movie scenes, document them anew and enhanced them graphically. The seemless transition between the floor and the wall causes a harmonious overall composition.

SURAVA - carpets handmade and dyed in Turkey
It all started with an invitation from Atelier Pfister to Istanbul and Central Anatolia – to get to know their local handcraft and traditional carpet markets. Together with Niels Blaettler we visited retailers, producers and restorers in the city and on the countryside. It was a very interesting and inspiring trip, which led me to the SURAVA carpet collection. In a close collaboration with Niels and the people there we worked out the idea and the concept of the technique and material. Back in Switzerland I started to design the patterns and chose the colors.

Im Frühjahr reiste Claudia Caviezel auf Einladung von Atelier Pfister zusammen mit Niels Blättler nach Istanbul und Zentralanatolien zu Teppichhändlern sowie Produzenten und Restauratoren. Auf der eindrücklichen Reise zu den Ursprüngen des traditionellen Teppichhandwerks, deren Wurzeln auf die ersten Menschen und angehenden Nomaden zurückgehen, demonstrierte Ahmet Diller, der langjährige Partner von Pfister in der Türkei, die verschiedensten Techniken und Umsetzungen von Teppichen aus Zentralanatolien.
Some impressions from our trip to Turkey last spring (Fotos Claudia Caviezel with Niels Blättler, Ahmet Diller, Tina Moor)
Used, traditional and hand knotted carpets are being redyed twice – for the cotton chain and another color for the woolen knots. It gives it a dense structure and it makes the history of the carpet visible by showing the used parts as a structure and new color, which fades in with the still visible original pattern. After this process lines of knots are being replaced by knots in a contrasting color. I worked out two drawings – one floral and one geometrical – which reminds me of hopscotch on playgrounds.
In enger Zusammenarbeit mit Niels Blättler entwickelte ich die Idee für die Teppichserie SURAVA: alte, traditionelle, von Hand geknüpfte Teppiche werden neu eingefärbt und mit einer Zeichnung. Das vom Aussterben bedrohte Teppichhandwerk in Zentralanatolien wird durch diesen Prozess des Recyclings und Upcyclings wiederbelebt und eröffnet den Teppichspezialisten und Restauratoren neue Perspektiven.
Die alten Teppiche, die auf einer Baumwollkette mit Wolle geknüpft worden sind, werden in zwei Verfahren unterschiedlich eingefärbt. Auf diese Art entsteht ein vielschichtiges Zusammenspiel des originalen, immer noch leicht sichtbaren Teppichmusters, der Wolle, die die Farbe nicht ganz deckend annimmt und den Gebrauchs- und Schürspuren, welche in der Baumwolle unterschiedlich eingefärbt sind. Durch diese Grundstruktur des Musters zieht sich eine neu eingeknüpfte Linie, welche eine grafische oder eine florale Zeichnung bildet.
Den Teppich SURAVA, Zeichnung floral, gibt es in den Farben Wasabi, Granat und Basalt; in der Zeichnung grafisch in den Farben Amber, Indigo und Türkis.
Jeder Teppich ist hinsichtlich Mass, Färbung, Musterung, Struktur und Ornament ein Unikat.
Ein Teppich in der Grösse von 170 x 240cm kostet ca. CHF 2850.-

Elements go wild
- a series of 7 pictures for curtains and light walls
Photos of applied images in architecture: Jürg Zimmermann www.zimmermannfotografie.ch
The goal of this project for BURRI public elements AG in collaboration with Frédéric Dedelley was, to evoke emotions and to bring some wild and beautiful nature into the minimalistic architecture of the new headquarter of the company. In the very same building there is the planning, production, presentation and business area. Hence various employees, customers and also the management are interacting with these vertical zones that also function as a product placement for BURRI’s wide range of product and technique solutions.
A series of seven pictures used as curtains or huge light walls draw the red thread through the different rooms and also have an effect to the outside of the building, especially by night, when illuminated.
I put nature in relation to the elements and products. Flowers, Trees, hanging gardens are invading the building and Animals are checking out and animate the space and products.
