Design

Rooted in a humanistic perspective, Helvethics brings back humanity in the technocratic world of design, ushering in what they call “Catalytic Inclusive Design”. Creating a reality in which designers, craftspersons, and users feel welcomed and embraced. With each new project, Helvethics defies design dogma, preferring to focus instead on the holistic, romantic, surreal, archetypical, rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy, and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment. The work Helvethics excites, provokes and polarises, but never fails to surprise, celebrate, and entertain. Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, it is the mission to create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.

Love will grow if we do

Love will grow

Humans, according to Helvethics, can shape their own values, and live a good and meaningful life. To build a lasting value in relationships, we need to be present for each other, to apologize for our own transgressions and, with empathy for life’s vicissitudes, to laugh and remember, to honor our differences, to see each other, to listen and to express appreciation and love for each other every day of our shared lives.

Being kind, caring, and generous is free. Spread the love!
