At DHDI, design always goes hand in hand with research. Once we have amassed a solid foundation of factual and contextual knowledge, we create an individual design identity that will serve as the basis of the design. During the design process, designer and scenographer Daniel Hunziker and his team focus on the space surrounding the actual object, in which and with which people move. The art of reduction, dealing with empty space and understanding the ageing process of materials are also important pillars of the DHDI design philosophy. This is how we give interiors a distinctive face, how exhibitions tell a coherent story and how we create aesthetically pleasing and functional products.
