December 2011


www.worldwatchweb.com - On 25 November 2011 the first flagship store of JORDI Swiss Icon, the new brand of Michel Jordi, opened on Niederdorfstrasse in Zurich.

A VIP evening preceded the opening, where the general public were able to see the original scissor-cutting design by artist Bartholomé Imobersteg that was the inspiration behind the new brand.

A 1090kg rock is on display near the entrance. Found at 46.57330 degrees latitude and 8.3812 degrees longitude, it was airlifted from Gletsch in the canton of Valais before being engraved and then installed in the shop by crane. It represents the source of the Rhone river, where Michel Jordi found the inspiration for his new collection.

The store also has a “Wall of Icons of Switzerland” including portraits of Ursula Andress, Vreni Schneider, Ferdy Kübler, Denise Biellmann, Le Corbusier, Giacometti, Bernhard Russi and Emil Steinberger.
