QWSTION STORE ZURICH
It’s been 4 years since we opened our first permanent store which includes our studio and workshop in Zurich – how time flies! Yesterday night we celebrated this with lots of friends, partners, customers, neighbors and collaborators... and this means a lot to us. There’s the big shift everyone is talking about, from offline to online, from brick-and-mortar to digital – in recent months we’ve seen several former partners who had been selling our products close down their shops. Nevertheless we believe in the importance of the physical shop, as a place for human interaction, as a space to get inspired and to engage with products and the stories behind them.
Call us nerds, but we are interested in the people who make things, how they do it, and what materials they use – our Qwstion Stores in Zürich, Vienna and Lausanne are a testament to this and are platforms for everyday essentials and modern design as we see it. Apparently we are not the only ones that believe this is relevant, as our fourth anniversary shows. So here’s a huge THANK YOU to all who have visited our stores over the years, to all who came to hear what Fritz and Nicole of Studio F&N said about developing an essential piece of furniture, and to all the great people making the products in our selection – you all give us a reason to keep going!
