The pavilion, designed by Ladner Meir Architecten, is part of the Swiss Embassy.
In late May Copenhagen once again formed the setting for 3daysofdesign where companies and organizations in the industry welcome you. This year, Petersen Tegl – in cooperation with the Swiss Embassy – was part of the popular event.
Since the highly dynamic Ambassador Benedikt Wechsler came to Denmark last year, he has attached new strong contacts between Denmark and Switzerland, not least in the field of design and architecture.
On the occasion of 3daysofdesign Wechsler had asked designer Alfredo Häberli refurbish the embassy, which is also the home of the Wechsler family, so the house now only offers the best of Swiss designed or manufactured furniture design.
The 600 guests who visited the embassy during the three days, also had the opportunity to inform themselves about the latest that has happened on the Swiss architecture scene. In text and images one could experience the extension to the Kunstmuseum Basel, inaugurated in April. The building was designed by Christ & Gantenbein, who chose coal-fired bricks from Petersen Tegl to the building's facades.
The Kunstmuseum Basel exhibition was located in a pavilion that is a result of another collaboration between the two countries. The pavilion is designed by the Swiss architects Ladner Meier, who have offices in both Zurich and Copenhagen – and who incidentally also have used Petersen bricks for projects in both Denmark and Switzerland.
