What inspired you to create Création Baumann’s Carte Blanche?
On the one hand, it was of course the attractiveness of the SILK & SPICES collection, and also the international context. Carte Blanche enables me to show the differences between interior design in cities such as Zurich, Paris, and New York. On the other hand, it appealed to me a lot that Création Baumann was documenting the making of this creative process to allow a look behind the scenes.
Why did you choose this specific object?
This detached home on Lake Zurich, which I had the honour of furnishing back in 2003, excellently balances function and aesthetics – it is quite a typical example of fine, modern architecture in these parts. To create a re-look for this object and replace textiles after 14 years makes sense from a sustainability point of view and was very exciting for me.
Was this a novel and/or instructional project for you?
The nice thing about my job is the fact that you learn something from every project, regardless of how much experience you already have. Carte Blanche gives me the opportunity to find a new perspective for an upcoming project. Of course we needed to work out the details and how to coordinate all the ideas we had come up with at such ease, but that is often the case, in a positive sense.
