Could miracles be a design project? The Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts in Lausanne has initiated a project centred on Switzerland’s natural springs and their extraordinary properties. Led by Colombian designer Felipe Ribon, the project explores the stories, rituals and customs associated with the miraculous spring waters and their connections to redemption, healing, purification, leisure, and fertility. By emphasising the link between natural elements, faith, and joy, the project proposes objects designed to enhance and facilitate contemporary rituals and the uses of these waters. Offering magical experiences within the House of Switzerland, it provides a unique retreat for visitors, reconnecting them with the irrational yet effective joy and hope felt in its presence. In a time when eco-anxiety can feel overwhelming, the project also highlights the solace and harmony found in connecting with water.
