Sustainability for V-ZUG
Quality of life is a defining pillar of the V-Zug brand and an emphasis on sustainable living is fundamental to the Swiss company’s approach. We travel to Melbourne to visit Hip v. Hype, an innovative company specialising in eco-friendly homes. In a perfect partnership of mind and mission, we discover how good design can have a positive affect on the planet.
Creativity in the Kitchen with V-ZUG
The alchemy of creativity and technology is at the heart of V-Zug’s innovation. An integral part of their R&D is collaborations with top chefs from around the world. We travel to Hong Kong, Munich and Bern to witness the fine balance of technology and design that inspires Michelin-starred chefs to be creative in the kitchen.
Design Innovation by V-ZUG
Swiss design is famous for precision engineering and high-quality materials. V-Zug’s design language is a reflection of this and is embraced by architects and designers around the world. We travel to Milan to talk to interior designer Elisa Ossino, who appreciates V-Zug’s purity of spirit and timeless elegance.
For more than 100 years, V-Zug has been developing and producing premium household appliances that balance efficiency with aesthetics. As the company launches its new Excellence and Supreme Lines, we visit their headquarters in Zug to discover the meaning of Swiss perfection for the home.
