Sphères

Read the Full Story

At the end of the nineties, it was a risk to open a bar in the middle of Zurich’s industrial district. Even more so when you wanted to open an unusual hybrid of a bookshop, venue and café! But, the industrial quarter transformed into the lively District 5. And what was right in the middle of it all? Sphères. Philipp Probst, one of the four main people in charge, has been working here for almost a decade.

Lilli Tulipan

Anja Sauer and Sigrid Carl have been running Lilli Tulipan since the mid-1990s. ‘We should start charging for entry,’ the two of them say, laughing. Because it isn’t just a shop. It’s a work of art.

Zürcher Brockenhaus

Jenja Doerig actually had no interest in second-hand stores. It was just by happy chance that he landed at the Zürcher Brockenhaus – or, more precisely, the Belétage, its elegant second floor. Here, he sells antiques, designer furniture and ‘a lot of must-have items’. This makes him part of an institution dating back 116 years. Yet he also makes sure that it moves with the times.

Little Company

Read the Full Story

Little Company on Josefstrasse used to operate solely online. Founder and mother of three Annette Merlo doesn’t want to go back to the internet again, a feeling that has been reinforced by her noticing that since the coronavirus, people are more inclined to browse in shops.
