A talk and discussion hosted and organised by Happen Project that reflects upon the relationship between local and ‘imported’ culture in the context of the Engadin’s destination.
Teilnehmer aus verschiedenen Disziplinen werden thematische Beiträge präsentieren sowie über das Verhältnis von lokaler und “importierter” Kultur im Engadin diskutieren.
In a workshop performance held on 9/10 February during the exhibition Neu/Vertraut – the Viennese design trio BreadedEscalope set their wood-bending machine in motion, creating a further exhibit: a used Stabelle was turned into Pipistrello (the bat).
For the Neu/Vertraut project, Happen istigated a collaboration between Loris&Livia and the local carpenter Beat Fried to produce a limited series of 25 large and 25 small Barnlights in ‘Arven’ wood (Swiss stone pine), a wood that is inherent to the Engadin culture.

The Neu/Vertraut project represents the interaction between local tradition and international design. The project takes residency in a former workshop in St. Moritz, which is transformed into a temporary exhibition space and a platform for exchange between regional culture and contemporary design.

With works by Anton Alvarez, Claire-Anna O’Brien, Daniel & Emma, Pia Wuestenbert, Martino Gamper, Florian Hauswirth, Gemma Holt and Loris & Livia.
