A sharp Swiss invention performs well. A small company called PanoramaKnife has been producing emotional products for 6 years. Instead of regular serrated cutting, the PanoramaKnife knives with the peaks of the mountains and the landmarks of the cities. It was during a trip over the Seerücken, the range of hills that separates Lake Constance from the rest of Switzerland. There the inventor had seen the Säntis and the Churfirsten very closely in foehn weather and had the idea of his life. And just one year later the first bread knives were for sale. Today, 6 years later, there are already 88 different mountain ranges and some city panoramas. The panoramas are available as super sharp bread knives, cheese knives, hard cheese cutters, universal knives and now also in a set of 4 as steak knives. The matching wooden chopping boards in 3 variations and the beautiful dishtowels are now also part of the range. The knives are all made in Switzerland.
The PanoramaKnife knives are, like most common knives, made of stainless blade steel 42(molybdenum/vanadium) DIN No 1.4116. hardened to 54-55 HRC (Rockwell C hardness). The blades are blue polished, the handles are made of walnut wood. The rivets are made of aluminium. The blades and handles are handmade in 18 operations in Switzerland and meet the Swiss quality requirements.

As the youngest daughter of the tie manufacturers Marianne and Michael Hosse, Josephine Hosse practiced playing with the splendidly shimmering colours of these special fabrics from an early age. The result is their own product line PHINE, founded in 2004.
In semi-annual collections, silk, cotton and wool find a new, unmistakable form, double-sided as scarves with fringes of their own or hand-rolled as carré with border, reflecting the unique depth of warp and weft.
These high-quality products made of fabrics from Como and handcrafted with precision in Zurich-Altstetten are intended for more than one season.
Whether it leads to success or not, if you never take a risk or chance an idea, then the likelihood is that you’ll end up regretting it.
Generally speaking, human instinct is to not take risks. We have all wanted to do something refreshing to test or challenge ourselves, but in all seriousness how many of us do? SEVENFRIDAY is a brand built on the foundations of taking that leap of faith, one aimed at challenging the ‘norm’ and creating alternatives. Founder Dan Niederer with tongue loosely in his cheek, calls the decision ‘stupidity’ with a hint of ‘midlife crisis’ and a strong whiff of ‘not being able to work for others anymore’, but most importantly one that allowed him a
freedom to realise his convictions and dreams.
SEVENFRIDAY to all of those involved, including customers and the wider
community, is a lifestyle. An almost ‘anti-brand’ that doesn’t have to workshop to identify its core values, or brainstorm to workout what the DNA is.
Why? Because they live
SEVENFRIDAY IS its people.
The SEVENFRIDAY name captures exactly what the whole lifestyle is about - by having fun, enjoying life and living everyday as if it’s a Friday. The designs are not short of the odd quirk here and there and wouldn’t look out of place in a stand off between Mad Max and Burning Man festival-goers, but this has been the whole point, to create something independent of influence, to sit happily on its own and away from a particular industry.
And of course there have been the naysayers. SEVENFRIDAY isn’t for everyone and doesn’t profess to be, which is something the team are happy to embrace.
Ever since 1975, my first encounter with the material, I have devoted myself exclusively to clay. In experimenting with different working methods and firing techniques in my studio, it has been my wish to recount a slice of life using symbols relevant to the present day. To evoke associations and emotions, to push the limits of the material, to let the fascination of the clay – in particular of porcelain – be felt. It is an attempt to halt time for just a moment, whenever my work affects somebody, be it with a cup, be it with an object.
Sonja Duò-Meyer has chosen to concentrate on vessels as her subject. Her work is informed by the magic of vessel shape and material, an approach that leads to highly expressive works. Challenging the limitations imposed by the material is what most intrigues the artist. Every beginning entails an infinite number of outcomes, and every ending contains the germ of innumerable new beginnings. Entirely hand-built as they are, these vessels are stunningly sculptural works that reveal a dynamic, vigorous process of creation and possesses a powerfully convincing organic quality. It would be hard to find the equal of the sensitivity and beauty they radiate.
We at Storyfabrics believe that design, superior quality and an eco-friendly lifestyle are no contradiction. We use 100% organically grown cotton, pay our farmers a fair price and support our manufacturers in ensuring the social and economical welfare of their employees. Storyfabrics designs and produces beautiful and timeless products for people with a sustainable lifestyle. Martina is inspired by her many visits to the production partners and the great craftmanship she can find in India.
The actual swaddle collection is a collaboration with the design studio cullycully and shows small and fun illustrations inspired by the Swiss nature. The "cloudy forrest collection" is available in limited numbers. The small muslin scarves are an iconic Swiss product better known as "Nuscheli" and are worn by babys and toddlers as scarves, bandanas, bibs, used as washcloths and towels. The "Nuscheli" are also wonderful to tie onto the pacifier chain as an added soother. Babys love the specific "Nuscheli"-texture that becomes softer and softer after each washing cycle. They enjoy putting them in their mouth and love to cuddle up with the soft textile.

Zürich based artist Maya Chelmis has always loved making things and has a deep passion for vintage items, so creating The Loving Spoon provided an ideal project. Maya strongly believes that choosing a gift or buying a personal keepsake doesn’t have to produce waste. Customizing antique silver-plated cutlery provides a uniquely beautiful way to give new life and purpose to all those old and tarnished spoons and forks people have been quietly storing in their attics for decades. Her motto is re-purpose, re-value, re-love.
Maya strolls through auctions, antique stores and flea markets around the world, collecting all the vintage silver-plated spoons and other cutlery she can find. She then takes her findings to her atelier in Zürich where she restores and cleans the reclaimed treasures individually and hand-stamps each letter of the messages that will give a new life to these everyday objects. All of the items you buy from The Loving Spoon are antique, silver plated and pre-loved. They are pieces of art, long ago forgotten and wanting to be loved again.
Tiger Swiss is a national insider’s story.
If you were a child in Switzerland between 1938 and 2019, there is a good chance you sported a pair of these with red pompoms while getting into mischief. It didn’t take long, but Edi Glogg’s innovative construction of these comfortable and distinctive shoes in natural and breathable materials gave Tigers nearly the same national notoriety as chocolate, cows and watches, except Tiger Swiss stayed well behind the border. These days, no one can quite remember why the shoes are named after an Asian jungle animal as they were never striped, but that doesn’t matter after 80 years of enduring popularity and recognition.
Grüezi! If you are thinking of Switzerland you might be thinking of Cows, Mountains, St. Moritz and Banks.
That's fine for us but what are Swiss Kids thinking about their country? They have only the «Tiger Original» in their mind. Nothing helps - it‘s all they want...
And if you have a close look into the studies - Swiss Kids are the happiest Kids on the planet. So it's time to share that happiness which we think, comes directly from this unique piece of footwear.
