Rolf Hiltl will be our July speaker.

In Europe the name Hiltl is well-known for the famous vegetarian restaurant located in the heart of Zurich.

The original restaurant opened 112 years ago (!) and is considered a gastronomic highlight in Zurich. Representing the fourth generation, 45-year-old Rolf Hiltl took over the family business in 1998, exactly 100 years after Europe’s first vegetarian restaurant was founded. Rolf Hiltl admits that his approach on running the business has always been both American and Swiss. He works on the trial and error principle: try something out and then improve on it.

Today the Hiltl brand includes a cooking studio, cook books, a bar, a club, take-away outlets and a catering business. Rolf Hiltl is also co-owner of tibits with 4 restaurants in Switzerland and one outlet in London.

Wanted: CreativeMornings co-sponsor

I am currently looking to find a co-sponsor for the upcoming CreativeMornings on July 9th with Rolf Hiltl at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich, Switzerland. The event is taking place in the courtyard of the museum in the supermodern Hiltl WM Lounge. The venue is stunning to say the least. (Event info)

Our attendees range from Designers (web and print), UX experts, Marketing, CEO’s of any kind of design related business, to writers, PR people etc. It’s an amazingly diverse group but I would say with a tendency to be more on the creative/designer side.

This month’s Breakfast Co-Sponsorship is $800 and includes:

A co-sponsor mention on the swiss-miss.com announcement post with a visual banner like on this announcement.

A mention and thank you at the beginning of the event with a screenshot of your site or any graphic of your choice, projected onto the screen. If you would like you can set up signs and can hand out print material during the event. We had Mailchimp hand out T-shirts in the past or Behance handed out their actionpads. You can really do whatever you’d like, or let’s say, almost anything! :)

CreativeMornings Icebreaker Tag



The icebreaker tag of this morning’s CreativeMornings asked the following question: If you could have any artist do a portrait of you, who would you pick? A few answers above, see all the answers in this Flickr Set.

Paola Antonelli, CreativeMornings

Yet another fantastic write-up of a CreativeMornings by Paul Soulellis:

Paola talked about design of course, and how the design community in NYC has shifted during the last 16 years. She started by comparing Milan’s regional strength (design) to New York’s (art) in 1994, when she arrived here. There’s a kind of normalcy in the way design belongs to life in Europe, and how it breeds a kind of everyday design culture that she felt was lacking in America (I admit, I still feel this). She traces this inferiority complex back to the 18th century, when we began importing culture from France. But she recognized New York’s strength in contemporary art (“in Italy art ended with Dada”) and today she traced the coming-together of art, design and architecture through technology and economic crisis from 1994 until now.

Read the full post.

CreativeMornings with Paola Antonelli

D A T E
CreativeMornings, June 18th 2010, 8.30am – 10am

S P E A K E R
Paola Antonelli is on a mission to introduce — and explain — design to the world. With her shows at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, she celebrates design’s presence in every part of life.

Since she stepped back from practicing architecture in order to focus on writing about design, teaching and curating gallery exhibitions, Italian native Paola Antonelli has become a force to be reckoned with in the design world. Working at the Museum of Modern Art in New York since 1994, she now heads up the gallery’s Architecture and Design department and has worked on shows such as “Humble Masterpieces,” which celebrated traditionally unheralded design icons such as the paperclip; “Safe,” considering issues of protection, and “Workspheres,” a look at contemporary workplace design.

Ever mindful that the majority of visitors to MOMA are attracted by artists such as Picasso and Matisse, Antonelli works to ensure that if they do stumble across a design-related show, they’ll be both entertained and enlightened.
