Le Corbusier, Max Bill, Herbert Matter, René Burri, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Freitag: in the fields of design and visual communication, Switzerland has long been a world leader. The Museum für Gestaltung is the sole institution in Switzerland to document the evolution of design through systematic collection since 1875; highlights include milestones in aesthetic and technical development since the beginning of industrialisation. Four different collections – Design, Graphics, Poster and Applied Art – are housed in the new Schaudepot, within the campus of Zurich University of the Arts in the Toni-Areal district, and can be visited on guided tours by appointment. The heart of the collection is the high-bay storage facility; upper rooms stage temporary exhibitions. The museum’s historical main location is undergoing full renovation and will reopen in 2017.
