Switzerland’s Obsession with Polka dots

I have been in Switzerland for a few weeks and everywhere I look I see polka dots. Let me illustrate with a few examples.


A Polka dot park at EPFL in Lausanne


Polka dot fountain spotted at Pierre Gianadda Foundation in Martigny. This one moved in circular motion while squirting water.



Polka dot ceiling at the Red Crescent Museum in Geneva


Polka dot gate to the train station at Bern



A polka dots building. You actually have to see it to believe it. This is the Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne.


I wonder if this obsession is inspired by Swiss Cheese or if Swiss Cheese is inspired by it?


Whatever the reason is, I am simply in love with this country. My obsession with polka dots is documented here.
