Carlo Rampazzi exhibition at the Fondazione Majid in Ascona

L'ECCEZIONE DELLA REGOLA, an exhibition exploring the life and work of renowned architect and designer Carlo Rampazzi, will run at the Fondazione Majid until the end of January 2024.

A fascinating exhibition exploring the life and work of Swiss artist Carlo Rampazzi will be on at the Fondazione Majid until the end of January 2024. An unmissable highlight of Ascona’s cultural calendar, it offers guests an unprecedented opportunity to discover Rampazzi’s impressive ouevre and immerse themselves in his creative world.

Born in Ascona in 1949, Rampazzi has earned a reputation as a respected architect, interior architect and designer. Known for his ‘Maximinimalismobili’ style, he creates unique works that transcend the boundaries of eras or fashions. His art is characterised by a profound understanding of shapes, colours and materials – one that distinguishes each of his projects clearly as a Rampazzi creation.

Carlo Rampazzi has bestowed his unmistakable stamp on the interior design of the Tschuggen Collection hotels for over two decades. Each hotel is its own work of art, drawing guests into worlds of wonder and piquing their curiosity with thought-provoking ideas.

In a sign of his close collaboration and long-standing friendship with the owner family, Rampazzi’s signature style is evident in every detail, from the custom-made furniture to the careful selection of fabrics. Each element of the space sits in perfect harmony with the local landscape. The colour green, a symbol of hope and creativity, plays a central role in the designer’s work. It symbolises not only his design philosophy but the nature around the four hotels, bringing the life-affirming effects of the outdoors in.
