Designer and owner of Yael Anders

Are you a Christmas lover?

I love the festive season. 

Do you have any Holiday / Christmas traditions?
Always celebrating 3 times, at least in Zürich. After that i usually relax in the swiss alps.

I love that all the offices are closed during this season.

What is your favourite food during the holidays?
Well, everything that’s fancy, special and not Fondue.

What is your most vivid childhood memory of Christmas?
When I think of Christmas I see a huge amount of girls everywhere. 

I've got a lot of cousins, only girls. When we come together on Christmas Eve it's like a meet-up with your girl-gang. 

What is on your wish list this holiday season / Christmas?
Actually a battery drill. I urgently need one to build some stuff. 

What was your favourite Christmas present as a child?
I always got architecture and art books from my aunt wich I tought was boring by the time. 

I tough like them a lot now and when I take a look back they’re the most lasting presents. 

Which gift did you want but never get?
Quite sure it was a horse. 

By now I’m glad I’ve never got one. 

If you have to choose the perfect gift for your best friend / loved one from your own collection, what would it be?
One of my handmade and gold plated vases from the „Unseen“ collection. The illustrative and intuitive design makes every piece unique and theres a lot of my effort hand time in each object.
