Original poster; Dolce Vita. tHIS was Lausanne's rock-and-roll version of Studio 54—so naturally, Keith Haring was a frequent visitor and creative contributor. To capture the vibe of the place, he conjured these two porous wrestlers whose limbs create an abstract geometric form. Haring had drawn a design for Dolce Vita on a piece of paper; two intertwined figures, half dancers, half fighters.



The owners of the venue so loved the design that they adopted his text as their official sign before closing in 1999. And because the Swiss have always been hip, you'll find this text at bottom: "An original creation of Keith Haring published by the Swiss State Dept. to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Swiss confederation." Rare!
