One of them is Happy Shop on buzzing Torstrasse, which shows the textile works of international known illustrator Miss Lotion. Inspired by medieval aesthetics, she teamed up with Danish textile designer Signe Emdal to create a series of spectacular digital knitted tapestries, which will cover the entire gallery space.
