ZÜRICH | The Museum Für Gestaltung (“Museum for Design”), is Switzerland’s foremost museum of industrial design, visual communication, architecture, and craft, and is one of the most highly regarded museums of its kind in Europe.

The museum is part of the Department of Cultural Analysis of the Zurich University of the Arts and is housed inside the department’s former School of Arts and Crafts. It’s a wonderfully imposing building that suits the theme of the works inside perfectly. The museum houses over 500,000 objects which are displayed across its four permanent collections, and five to seven temporary exhibitions which engage with current themes and issues from the various design genres shaping everyday visual life.

The Poster Collection, which contains over 330,000 political, cultural, and commercial posters from the mid-19th-century to the present day, from across the world, is fascinating. The Design Collection includes 10,000 products and 20,000 examples of packaging produced by famous designers, while the The Applied Art Collection includes over 15,000 pieces of things like glass, ceramics, textiles and furniture, with a focus on Europe, the USA, and modern-day Japan. The fourth collection, Pavillon Le Corbusier is dedicated to the work of renowned Swiss architect Le Corbusier.

A truly in-depth, well curated museum that’s well worth visiting for anyone with even the slightest interest in the topics that it covers which, when you think about it, touch upon all aspects of everyone’s life.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
