Netzwerk Designgeschichte

The association Netzwerk Designgeschichte NDG (Eng. Design History Network) is a platform that connects people interested in design history within Switzerland, both from theory and practice, and facilitates exchanges among them. The aim of the association NDG is to promote the awareness, research and mediation of design history in Switzerland. This includes a broad spectrum of design-historically oriented disciplines from both established and newly emerging fields such as the history of graphic, product, industrial, textile, fashion, jewellery, interaction and game design, and illustration amongst others.

Current Board: Meret Ernst, Mònica Gaspar, David Glättli, Ariana Pradal, Sabina Tenti, Peter Vetter and Robert Wettstein.
