Have you ever heard about the Designgut? It's a lifestyle fair (based in Winterthur) in which small companies showcase their products (with a special focus on sustainable ones) in the field of fashion, accessories, jewelry and furnitures.

INDIGO was born in December 2014 with the aim to create clothing that entails the “Swiss Made” avant-garde and contemporary models in one unique brand (all clothes are entirely designed and produced in Ticino, Switzerland).

Inspired by the Musée du Louvre, the shape of the bag GIZI recalls the reflection in the water of the pyramid in front of the museum. Versatile and extravagant, it is perfect for informal and formal occasions.

The bags are created “as if they were an architectural project”: it all starts with a sketch, followed by a plan and a drawn model, and then by the making of prototypes and design of three-dimensional objects to understand how all the bags’ components work together.

As if they were an architectural project: the INKI bags.

Most of their inspiration comes from the everyday life but they are also interested in traditions of Shinto and Feng-Shui and “the most recent designs have drawn inspiration from traditional Tibetan Thangka paintings as well as from Japanese woodblock prints by Hiroshige and Hokusai”. Long Silver Thread style is a mix of all those inputs, coming from ancient traditions.

Long Silver Thread is synonym of meaningful Jewelry.

In the upside-down world lives and works a designer duo who creates silver jewelry “with meaning for everyday journeys”. Renchen and Zeno, whose brand is Long Silver Thread, have a strong connection with symbolism and all their pieces are designed keeping this in mind.

OPACA N°2 investigated a mechanical approach to nature. Catarina describes this collection as raw pieces with apparent simplicity with mechanical and organic forms as well. The outcomes? Melted plants or flower skeletons, to name just a couple of examples.

OPACA currently consists of two projects. OPACA N°1 is characterized by a minimalist and graphical approach to jewellery. Some of the pieces were designed as a module and explored the contrast between metal and low-life materials.
