Essay

After completing his studies in Basel, followed by a meteoric start with the group N2, Jörg Boner has been responsible for designing a diverse spectrum of products, furniture and spaces of exceptional quality. He has been running his own design studio, Jörg Boner productdesign in Zurich, where he employs two further designers, for over ten years now. Along with teaching at the ECAL Lausanne he develops articles of daily use ‒ ranging from thermos flasks to street lights for industrial mass production or as individual pieces. His works are always functional and pictorial, they serve and make a statement at the same time. The designer's creations regularly question production methods and attitudes that are adopted automatically because that is how they have been passed down. Today, he is considered one of the most important national designers of the 'middle generation'. The Swiss Confederation has singled out Jörg Boner for his ongoing contribution to Swiss design and his commitment as a designer and a teacher.
