Warum eine Büroklammer

Die Büroklammer steht für zwei Dinge: Zum einen zeigt sie, dass ein Stück gebogener Draht das Leben unzähliger Menschen auf der ganzen Welt vereinfachen kann. Eine simple Idee kann langfristig sehr erfolgreich sein. Ich bin überzeugt: Effiziente und effektive Lösungen sind meist einfach und elegant.

Zum anderen heisst die Büroklammer auf Französisch «trombone», was auch Posaune heisst. Musik war und ist mir in meinem Leben wichtig. Vor meinem Jurastudium habe ich eine Fachmatura in Musik (Theorie und Klarinette) abgelegt, denn in der Musik kann sich Kreativität am besten und ohne Grenzen ausdrücken. Seit einigen Jahren bin ich fasziniert von der Posaune und habe vor kurzem angefangen, sie zu spielen.

Why a paper clip

The paper clip stands for two things: on the one hand, it shows that a piece of bent wire can simplify the lives of countless people around the world. A simple idea can be very successful in the long run. I am convinced that efficient and effective solutions are usually simple and elegant.

Secondly, the paper clip is called “trombone” in French, which also means trombone. Music was and is important to me in my life. Before studying law, I took a specialised baccalaureate in music (theory and clarinet), because creativity can express itself best and without limits in music. I have been fascinated by the trombone for a few years and recently started playing it.
