Senior Design Factory, set up in 2008 by 2 swiss design graduates, is a workshop, a design studio and a shop where young designers work with senior craftsmen. This Zurich based cooperative aims to fight ageism by making senior and younger partners equal. They produce and sell hand made accessories and objects for everyday living. Recently they also opened a restaurant where young chefs work with seniors on their classic recipes.
Here is their website: http://www.senior-design.ch/
