Swiss company AGOindesign specialises in interior design and handmade furniture. Their style can be described as linear and timeless with enchanting hidden details. Taking a closer look is certainly worthwhile. CEO and founder Nusmir Agovic always knew he wanted to have his own business one day. Many years ago, during his carpenter apprenticeship, he discovered his fascination for unique and quality furniture. After studying interior design with a specialisation in woodworks, it was time for Agovic to make his dream come true. He merged his talents and founded AGOindesign. Agovic designs concepts for restaurants, stores and public objects, but also works within the private sector. A previous highlight has been planning the bar and gastronomy area of the world’s first FIFA museum in Zurich. From concept and planning to construction management, AGOindesign offers interior design services from start to finish.“My goal is to

design something special and unique for every project and I love to be challenged,” says Agovic. “Often my ideas are inspired by small things or a little detail.” The small yet exquisite collection of handmade furniture by AGOindesign stands out with its straightforward unpretentious style combined with elaborate, almost hidden details. “My furniture aims to fascinate customers. There are so many unique details that cannot be spotted at first glance. They amaze people and often the question arises how a piece of furniture has been constructed as it is not immediately obvious,”Agovic explains with a smile.

Fischer merged their extensive technical know-how of titanium castings with their passion for the sea. DiverDesign was born. Creating such detailed titanium castings is a challenging process but DiverDesign has truly mastered this art. Hafner says: “Titanium is completely allergy-free, and a large number of unique optical effects can be achieved through
