Museum Bellerive

The Bellerive Museum, a section of the current Zurich Museum of Design, was established in 1968 with the goal of making it the largest collection of applied arts and handicrafts in the country available to the public. It is located in a beautiful villa on the shore of Lake Zurich, built in 1931 by the architect Erhard Gull for the textile manufacturer Julius Bloch. Various objects of applied art made from glass, ceramics, wood, metal and textiles are on display. Focus has been placed on the period dating from the Art Nouveau to the present. One of the museum's most important features is its world-famous textile collection – it includes such rarities as ancient samples of European cloth (4th - 6th centuries) and Peruvian textiles (3rd - 15th centuries), silk materials from the baroque to the Art Nouveau eras, clothing from the 19th and 20th centuries, and even modern textiles produced in the second half of the 20th century.
