  • New Exhibition by Ruedi Hiller, Opening on 15 April 2014, 5-8p.m.

    Art plays an important role at the Design Hotel Plattehof . And in the various forms. Changing exhibitions of artists – known or yet to be discovered – frame a charming atmosphere in our restaurant Sento.

    The ever present art in the corridors and the bar should be an asset to your stay. We are particularly proud of a series by Swiss artist Max Bill, which was acquired from the estate of Jacques Schader.

    Current exhibition from 15th April to 4th July, 2014 THE BEAUTY OF DECAY  –  Exhibition by Ruedi Hiller

    The photographs exhibited at the Plattenhof are from the Urbex Project 2012/2013 by the Swiss photographer Ruedi Hiller who has explored what one might call “Lost Places”, abandoned centers of industrial activities. An eerie atmosphere, a cold silence, permeate a space frozen in time. The locations are dismal, primarily black in tone; and yet, out of this almost monochrome setting, dashes of color, accents of light and shadow with bizarre objects bestow an uncanny aesthetic. The images bear testimony to a predominately desolate scenario of deterioration and decay while still depicting the ethereal stillness and strange beauty of these forgotten places.
