Galerie Viceversa  -  20 years ! 
Vocation: transmitters of enthusiasm. This passion shared by Christian and Ilona is
characterised by tradition and an exquisite know-how that is resolutely turned to experimentation and the here and now. Twenty years already! It was in 1998 that their galleyviceversa opened in the old ticket office of the Swiss Railway Company (CFF) at the Place St-François. Laboratory and showcase of jewellery being invented, it presented in Lausanne a fertile artistic and committed approach from here and everywhere. Cheeky or rigorous, refined or baroque, organic or geometric, sensual or precious, in close link with the body, revisiting or diverting jewellery, the creations they help us to discover, are un unedited summary of the world, poetic or quirky. Without ever failing neither in their zeal nor in their demand for quality, they have made a place that belongs to them, recognized far around. Not only do they continue everyday to take up their fine challenge, far from commemorating this anniversary in the rear-view mirror, they take a beta gain and always on tomorrows creators, in a firework of ideas, forms, materials and inventiveness.
