The interior designer Lien Tran was born in 1975 in Vietnam to Chinese parents and has been living in Germany since the age of three. Growing up in Europe, she was strongly influenced by Western culture, but still finds inspiration in her Asian heritage. She seeks to combine the features of these two distinct worlds to transmit her unique perspective through her work. After her interior design studies in Coburg and Hildesheim, she worked for Elsa Prochazka in Vienna and Yasmine Mahmoudieh in Berlin. In 2006, she founded her own studio for architecture and design and now works with her team on national and international projects.

The results are works with a strong expression and emotionality. Alfredo Häberli's work and designs have been shown in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe and he has received many awards for his work during the past 16 years. A personal monograph «Alfredo Häberli - Sketching My Own Landscape» was published by Frame Publishers in Amsterdam and in October 2006 he was guest of honour at the 20th Biennale of Design in Kortrijk, Belgium. In this context the book «Alfredo Häberli Design Live» with photos of some of Switzerlands most influential Artists, interpreting Alfredo Häberlis work, was released and published by Birkhäuser. With his own retrospective exhibition «SurroundThings» in 2008 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, for which he was responsible for numerous exhibitions since 1988, a personal dream came true. In 2009 he was awarded by A&W magazine (Architektur & Wohnen) as the «Designer of the Year 2009» and honoured with a monograph exhibition on the occasion of the international furniture fair - imm cologne. Alfredo Häberli has been curating «Atelier Pfister – Neues Schweizer Design» by Pfister AG since 2009. Alfredo Häberli's most extensive project to date, the 25hours Hotel Zurich West, was inaugurated in November 2012. He was responsible for the overall interior decoration and designed more than 60 products for the hotel. In 2014 Alfredo Häberli received the prestigious Swiss Grand Prix of Design from the Swiss Federal Office of Culture. // MELANIE SEIFERT Dipl.-Ing. Univ.

Idealism and inventive talent play a major role in their designs. Caramel’s lecture series, courses, and art projects like the contribution for the Austrian pavilion at the architecture biennale 2016 in Venice are the salt in the soup of everyday architectural life.

A wealth of new products and technologies from the world of floors once again awaits architects, interior designers and designers in January 2017 at the DOMOTEX trade fair in Hannover. To make sure that you quickly find the topics relevant for design and planning in a clearly accessible way, World-Architects again offers practice-oriented “Guided Tours” of the trade fair in the scope of Innovations@DOMOTEX, which are this time complemented by «Themed Tours». However, before we start on 14 January 2017, a brief warm-up is, of course, necessary.
