museum fur gestaltung

a couple of weekends ago (didn't get a chance to write about this before) i got a chance to see a couple of exhibits at the museum of design (museum fur gestaltung) with a friend from the group at eth.

there were two exhibits - one on design inspired by all things in nature (like furniture based on algae microstructure) and one on all things related to time (clocks, time tables, swatch watches). both were pretty cool.

on a side note, the day we went was very sunny and i guess one of the things to do in zurich is "surf" on the river. when we were walking to the museum, we passed someone doing this - with a rope tied to a bridge. check out the pic to see what i mean.
