The Swiss agency and design brand iSHONi® has been created in 1996 by Manuela Federica Krebser (*1964), daughter of novelist Federica de Cesco. The word iSHONi means “together” in Japanese, and “beautiful” in the language of the Navajo Indians.
Manuela-Federica has been supported in her career as a Designer by HERMES (Paris) since the age of sixteen. In 2012, Manuela Federica designed for NESTLE the scarf- and tie collection "NESTLE – LES MERVEILLES DU MONDE”.
In 2014 she realised the shop-products for the ACROPOLIS MUSEUM in Athens / Greece. In 2016 she created the Corporate design “RANDOM” for OMEGA for the new MOUCHARABIEH (outside building façade) of the OMEGA Boutique at Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris. OMEGA also uses that design for displays and marroqui-nerie, as well as for the official OMEGA scarfs and ties where iSHONi became their official supplier. From 2016, Manuela-Federica has been annually entrusted by German Porcelain Manufacturer ROSENTHAL PORZELLAN to design the series of their “CHINESE ZODIAC”, and the new Christmas Dinnerware 2018 “YULE” has been launched by ROSENTHAL in spring at MAISON & OBJET in Paris, and at AMBIENTE in Frankfurt.
In the field of corporate- & designer carpets, the brand iSHONi became worldwide known within professionals since 2002, when Manuela’s collections yearly were selected to adorn the Mainhall “FLOORFORUM” at DOMOTEX - Show in Hannover. From 2008 to 2012, Manuela Federica was living in New York where she designed rug collections for ABC CARPET & HOME (Broadway), who repeatedly advertised her work and design brand in magazines such as the Interior Design Magazine. Manuela-Federica got the US Green Card for “Extraodinary abilities” for this collaboration.
The strength of iSHONi is a high quality solution for corporate- & custom tasks, with a strong focus to design & markets, and executed with in-depth production knowledge. Together with our certified producers we form a team whose goal it is to realise a product that achieves its expectations. A good and strong teamwork is vital to us.
