COMMON GOODS AT MAISON SHIFT
As part of the Zürich Design Weeks 2024
20–22 September 2024
public event





Look forward to Common Goods project focuses on Ticino blueprinting, a traditional textile printing technique that uses wooden models and indigo dyeing to create textile patterns. The printed textiles are used to create a series of jackets that are not bought but borrowed. Named after its founding principle, Common Goods envisions a future that goes beyond traditional ownership and emphasizes communal sharing.

The project by Sara Liz Marty and Nadja Zürcher is the result of two years of textile research and future-oriented development in the field of tension between innovation and Swiss cultural heritage.
