Swiss designer Philippe Cramer creates objects using various materials including porcelain, crystal and metal.
As reflected by his signature “Designed in Geneva, made in Switzerland”, Philippe Cramer’s products showcase not only the creativity but also the quality of Swiss craftsmanship and precision. Far from the hegemony of mass production and marketing, Philippe Cramer cultivates his own highly personal style. His approach brings together hand-crafting techniques with industrial processes, traditional materials with technological components, the codes of a vernacular aesthetic with a universal vision of beauty. Philippe Cramer aspires not only to conceive the most efficient products but also to create an emotional and intellectual triangle between an object, its creator and its user.
The Salon de Cartigny is a reconstitution of the reception room originally in the Cartigny castle. The wood paneling is the original work by the master wood sculptor Jean Jaquet.
