Hi / Grüezi!

After owning and running an award winning UK interior consultancy for almost two decades (Ralph Capper Interiors) I sold the business in 2015 to relocate to Zürich, Switzerland. During my time in this fantastic company I acted as trusted consultant to leading Architects and Interior Designers, to create and deliver unique furniture and interior schemes at the highest level. References include Manchester United VIP Lounges, Rothschilds Bank, Westminster Courts, Liverpool FC, Manchester Airport Group, Peninsula Law and many leading Universities. In 2010 we won the coveted Company of the Year award at Mixology North.

Since arriving in Switzerland and brushing up on my German, I’ve been working as Corporate Interior Specialist for Zingg Lamprecht AG (Zürich). My role is to win and deliver commercial interior projects for Swiss and International clients by working closely with architects, interior designers and property professionals across Europe, as their independent interior consultant.

In 2017 I led the firm’s successful bid for the 100,000 sq ft HQ of a top 3 global tech brand for 600 staff - a fantastic project win. In 2018, with the help of a great team, I project managed the phased installation of this project over 8 floors, with furniture supplied from almost 70 specialist manufacturers. Furniture successfully installed included a large number of complex, specially developed bespoke elements.

Other recent projects in Switzerland include numerous global financial, education and hospitality market leaders.

I’m always keen to make new connections across global Architectural, Interior and Furniture communities and I’m always happy to offer advice to young designers and makers. I write a blog called Furniture Strategist - as well as contributing to industry magazines and when not delivering cutting-edge interiors you’ll find me running, biking, snowboarding or watching my beloved Man United :)
