The studio has received numerous awards including the Swiss Design Award, the iF design award, the Wallpaper Design Award, the Good Design Award, the Hublot Design Award and Design Preis Schweiz. BIG-GAME's works are part of the collections of the Museum fur Gestaltung, the Musée du Grand-Hornu, the Centre Georges Pompidou as well as the MoMA. The studio is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. In addition to their design work, the three founders of BIG-GAME also serve as professors at ECAL / University of Arts and Design Lausanne. About the Talk on FUNCTIONALISM Swiss design is famous for its rational approach and the emphasis it puts on function. As a studio based in Switzerland, when designing furniture, watches, tableware or interiors for clients in Japan, Italy or Denmark, we clearly value function, but we also try to add an element of playfulness and optimism. Here are a few examples of our work from around the world. 

About the exhibition Q&A 
Q&A to be held in Delhi Monday 3 Oct 2016 at 125 MCM New Delhi with Indian designer Itu Chaudhuri of Itu Chaudhuri Design. The Q&A exhibition concept is based on a dialogue between 10 products designed by BIG-GAME design studio and 10 items selected by a designer in a specific hosting country. The result is a playful exhibition that confronts BIG-GAME's view on design with the local culture of objects. The opening is a great opportunity for international exchange for the designers to share stories about objects through an informal presentation. So far, the concept has been executed in Tokyo, Prague, Bordeaux, Barcelona and Mexico City. 

Partners: Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council in collaboration with swissnex India and Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology.
