Jeudis Design 2014

For their 9th and 10th editions, the Jeudis Design invite you to special events to discover today's design trends, in Switzerland and abroad. Lectures, panels and debates will be as many opportunities to meet and exchange with Swiss and international designers.

In partnership with the magazine Espaces Contemporains.

On the occasion of the exhibition Nirvana. Strange Forms of Pleasure, the mudac invites you to an exceptional  Design Trip about scents and colours; to an exclusive talk by Betony Vernon, erotic jewellery designer and author of The Bible of the Boudoir; and to a roundtable - When sexuality rythmes with censorship - where professionals from the realms of culture, politics and communication fields will discuss the limits of speech and images.
