Tissi Clemens

Clemens Tissi, architect, was born in 1963 in Schaffhausen, Northern Switzerland. In the 1990s he moved to Berlin, opening a gallery dedicated to 20th century design. Since 2010 the Swiss architect’s focus has been on minimalist furniture and lighting, transferring the utopian spirit of modernism into the present. As an architect Tissi has realized a large number of projects for private residences that continue to showcase his multi-talented approach. His latest project in 2015 is the architecture exhibition of the permanent collection for the Bauhaus-Archive Museum in Berlin.

Here is Tissi Clemens’ light box idea: Lichtkiste.

Swiss Artist David Bill


David is the son of Jakob Bill, a fellow artist who is the son of Bauhaus student and Swiss architect Max Bill. David follows in a similar vein to what came before him, using this inspiration in a modern way and creating wonderful works of art. His theme of working revolves around the idea of “contours of space”, using asymmetry and relationships in the object to create deception and intrigue. For me they are unique because they toe the line between something that’s aesthetically pleasing and something that’s quite bold and intense.
