CV

Fabian started his career as Industrial Designer at the design agency Designaffairs in Munich. After three years filled with a broad range of experiences working for many well-known brands, he decided to return to his home country Switzerland, where he now works as a freelance Industrial Designer.

Before his bachelor’s degree in 2012 in Industrial Design at the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, he complemented his apprenticeship as a Pattern Maker. (a mix between Carpenter and Precision Mechanics)
In 2007 he won first place at the professional championship in Switzerland as Pattern Maker and right after got 2nd at the world championship in Japan.

Fabian likes to spend his time in the great outdoors and tinkering in his workshop. Being active in nature and working with his hands is a huge source of inspiration.
