The thing is, although I’m recommending this place, this is exactly the kind of shop I try to avoid. The only safe way for me to enter shops that offer such beautiful things should offer either handcuffs or credit card control schemes and in my case both would only just hold me back from dropping mad cash on random objects that appeal to my “artsy” side.
I keep trying to rationalize my visits by saying that the Swiss domestic economy is in need of rescue due to the strong Euro and that it’s my duty to do all I can to save the country I’ve adopted as my home. It’s shopaholic logic, I know.
Whether you need cool new headphones to show off, whether you want brightly colored garden furniture even though you don’t have a garden or whether you don’t plan on buying anything at all, this is where you will find that something you’ve been hankering after (even if only subconsciously).
If it’s news to you that the Swiss love design (and not just designer clothes a la Bahnhofstrasse), then pop into this shop to be educated. There is also one on Seefeldstrasse 96 should you be in that part of town. To round up your education you should probably hop over to Neumarkt too (check the article).
Now for those of you in need of a quick fix, Einzigart has opened up a little shop right next to Kaufleuten on Pelikanstrasse 18.
