Since 2007, Switzerland’s Federal Office of Culture has honored the work of renowned designers who exemplify the quality and relevance of Swiss design practice both nationally and internationally. Simply put, the yearly awarded Swiss Grand Prix of Design reflects the best that Switzerland has to offer in this field. The roll call of winners illustrates the country’s multifaceted spectrum of design production. In their many and varied ways, they have infused the cultural landscape with fresh ideas and continue to inspire new generations of designers, influencing current design as well as Swiss design history.
The 2021 laureates of the Swiss Grand Prix of Design are the graphic designer Julia Born, photographer and art director Peter Knapp, and researcher and lecturer Sarah Owens.
This book introduces them through texts, conversations, short biographies, and images from their archives.
