Reopening of the Museum für Gestaltung, Zurich

The Museum für Gestaltung will celebrate it's newly-renovated building on 2-3 March 2018.

Vogt Landscape Architects chose to use concrete furnishings as the base for a moss installation. These furnishings are by Swiss company Eternit, who manufacture the celebrated designs for concrete planters and seats. The different design objects become a growing medium for moss, which expands its coverage of the concrete when environmental conditions are ideal, and retracts at other times of year. In this sense, the installation is not only a celebration of great Swiss design but also an expression of the local weather and seasonal changes.
