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.

"EIN LABOR FÜR NEUES ALFREDO HÄBERLI, Kurator
Für die zweite Kollektion von Atelier Pfister habe ich eine Reihe weiterer Gestalter eingeladen. Dazu gehören die Textildesignerin Claudia Caviezel, die besonders mit ihrer Farbigkeit, mit ihren collagenartigen Mustern für Überraschungen sorgt. Sie sprudelt vor Energie und finden in vielen Ländern neue Ideen. Kein Wunder, dass ihre Stoffe ausseheh, wie wenn man die ganze Welt durch ein Kaleidoskop sehen würde. Und für Atelier Pfister wagt sie sich zum ersten Mal an einen Möbelentwurf, ein Sofa. ......

SWISS November 2009
Starting with the BLINDES idea, I already used in my textile design diploma 2002 tape it; I developed a series of patterns for room dividers and walls in the Business class Lounge of Swissport International Ltd. at Airport Zurich in the New Terminal Dock Midfield.
It was collaboration with the Architect Daniela Saxer

The conclusion: Too much light, and the camera not totally closed. ... Let's try again!
Workshop with MISSONI
MISSONI in Madrid, MISSONI in the Prado-Museum, MISSONI and Art…
It is an experiment to play with the strong relationship of MISSONI and the Art-world. I see it as a fusion of color and shape, which changes the message of the original paintings or drawings sometimes ironically, sometimes artistically.

ISTANBUL our first trip!
We went for 10 days to Istanbul, and attended t
It all started with a CHAIR
We all had to buy, ... and work with it. I decided to take it with me to Istanbul, and exchange it with something else, which I again will replace with something else. The whole process of looking for a partner, dealing and having the new object will be documented photografically.
Like that, throughout all our travelling, I will create an exchange network of objects, ideas and people.

Mike from the Kybele Hotel is the "one"! I get a wonderful handmade fabric for the IKEA chair, which he converts immediately into one of his objects:
