About 2016

The first Designers’ Saturday took place in Langenthal in 1987. Since then there have been 15 of these biennial occasions, to provide support for the Swiss design scene whilst giving it a publicity platform and stimulating its further development.

Designers’ Saturday happens at a place where design is actually created. Designers’ Saturday is not just a product show held on characterless trade fair premises. Instead it is a stage where authentic design skills are put on view at the atmospheric production sites of the companies involved.

The event is an international meeting point for the design world. The presentations of numerous internationally known firms will be accompanied by the Cartes Blanches of both national and international colleges of art and design.
