With headquarters in Bern and Geneva, arttesa has executed countless interior design projects since 1985 with heart-felt enthusiasm and a great deal of creativity. The arttesa team includes Kathrin Schmied, Andrea Lustenberger, Emmanuelle Fleury, Norma Bertsch and Christoph Erb. Instead of an ordinary office, they meet potential clients in their lovely, almost magical workshop, filled with everything and anything the clientâ€™s heart may wish for. What could be called a sophisticated playground containing building components, materials and much more, creates an inspiring yet hands-on atmosphere that captures clients and designers alike.
