Opening a new store in Zurich is always something special for us at Soeder. After all, it's our hometown - most of the people who work in our soap factory live here. When it's also a place you've passed by many times yourself and like, the joy is all the greater! Stadelhofen station near Bellevue is such a place. We especially love Santiago Calatrava's architecture: the concrete pillars in the basement are inspired by the ribs of a bull.
Of course, there's another reason why the newest Soeder store is located in a train station. Refilling our glass bottles is central to Soeder's company philosophy. We believe it is important to make this refill as easy as possible for you. That's why Soeder already has a store at Zurich's main train station; we want to continue this success story at Stadelhofen station, which is one of the ten busiest in Switzerland.
Like all stores, we designed the new branch at Stadelhofen station ourselves with our creative team. In the process, they have achieved true miracles: everything a Soeder store needs is housed in just 15 square meters - and at the same time, the design that you already know from our other stores is continued. For the Refill and Testing Station we used the characteristic rounded tiles from the Dutch company D-tile, which have already been used in other stores. They are handmade - and now in our own Soeder color, by the way! The carpet was woven for us in Langenthal by the traditional Swiss company Ruckstuhl. We also use PMF metal connectors, which support our flexibility and underline our production purity and robustness - and which are also a Swiss product.
