White Knights by Federico Berardi

WGSN-homebuildlife visited Switzerland last week to attend the ECAL graduation show. Our full report on the themes to emerge from the show will be available to subscribers later this week - in the meantime, here are some of our favourite pieces from the renowned design school's Art Direction graduates.

Gaijin by David Favrod

Federico Berardi's White Knights documents an intrepid journey through the snowy Swiss mountains, while David Favrod's work shows a woman dreamily enticed by a wild sea.

Curioso by Olga Cafiero
We also admired Olga Cafiero's vision of manufacture and industry: a piled assortment of odds and ends with a peculiarly striking aesthetic. For more art direction and VM inspiration, subscribers should click here.
