A stark and sharp outline, lighted from behind: KONTURA design fabricates wall lightings shaped like the silhouette of Swiss cities – so far Bern, Zurich, Basel, Lucerne and Fribourg. In addition to the city silhouettes on offer, KONTURA also fabricates custom-made products for hotels, practices, hospitals and private customers. “My original inspiration was our move to Bern. Our new flat had very high walls and the view from the living room window was actually not very nice: The building next door was a large concrete office building,” says designer Susanne Heinzer. Because the room did not have any light fittings on the ceiling, she had an idea that would later become a business. “We created a wall light that gave us exactly the view we wanted,” a city silhouette. The Creative Hub helped with later product development.
