Lina Furlenmeier – the artist

The well-known artist Lina Furlenmeier has her studio in our building at Birsfelden (Basel) where she creates her modern art paintings.

We asked Lina to paint one of our ISF1-X incubator shakers. She was inspired by the orbital movement of a shaker and the result is a beautiful, brightly coloured machine: the prize for this competition.
