Christoffer Joergensen is an artist and photographer based in Zurich. He uses digital photography as a raw material to be alienated and transformed with a combination of computer programs and artisanal techniques. Tactility and sensuality are essential characteristics in his work. It’s important to him to create things that resonate with our times and that touch people on a visceral level. He received the Thames & Hudson book price for his graduating show at the Royal College of Art in London and has numerous group and solo shows around Europe. The shower curtain “Falster” is inspired by his Grogram technique in which he laboriously cuts photographs into thin strips using a cutter and then interweas them to create a much finer and more intricate grid. This makes the artwork become delicate, sensuous and atmospheric.

Jacco Bunt is a Dutch visual artist. He studied illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and is now working between Berlin, Germany and The Netherlands. His work is characterized by the use of minimalistic interpretation of reality, a balanced composition and overwhelming use of color. These elements are the basis in all his work. Heavily influenced by Dutch design he plays with known structures and tries to re-invent himself every time again. Within the construction of the compositions he likes to play with everyday surroundings such as traditional still life or architectural elements. He uses them to create a narrative and a connection between the viewer and the images. The shower curtain “Village” is inspired by a minimalistic story of modern day folklore. The figurative elements create a narrative on the shower curtain which the user can emerge himself in.

Les Crafties is a studio founded in 2018 by Jeanne and Marie-Marie that creates collections applied to the domestic spaces. Their collections are sets, props, objects, almost in the tradition of «ensembliers». Their objects are dialogues of materials, colors and scales. It is a joyful back and forth between volume and dish, and above all the desire to visually transcribe the pleasure of handling materials. Between artistic installation and design, they proudly wear this double identity, in a desire for complementarity and decompartmentalization. The shower curtain “Le Balcon” is inspired by the shores of Lake Geneva in Geneva, and the magnificent Ariana museum of ceramics.
