Design time travel with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB)

Switzerland’s image as a “rail nation” is no coincidence. It has one of Europe’s densest high-capacity rail networks. The Swiss Federal Railways played a pivotal role in the evolution of public transportation. For more than a century, the SBB has been providing mobility and today transports over a million people every day. The Museum of Design in Zürich salutes the national rail system operator with an exhibition that showcases the SBB’s accomplishments in architecture, industrial design, and visual communication. Original objects, photographs, and installations invite visitors to travel through time from the beginnings of the SBB to the present and on to the future. Since Lantal has been serving the SBB with seat cover fabrics and carpets for decades, the exhibition also presents photos and textile samples from historic and current rail projects. Lantal is proud of and grateful for this long-standing collaboration.

The Museum of Design on Ausstellungsstrasse in Zürich is hosting the exhibition until January 5, 2020.
