Born in 1984, Fabien Roy is a swiss designer and architect. Graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from The School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg (Switzerland), he is currently completing a Master in Product Design at ECAL University of Art and Design Lausanne (Switzerland).
After working more than ten years as an architect project manager, he decided to switch from architecture to product design. His aim is to explore an other scale of human being needs without reducing his interest for architecture.

In his view, the field of design cannot be summed up in a final product. The approach taken to achieve it should be considered as important. His design try to look upon societal and environmental matters responsibly. For him, designers play a key role by investing the intimate universe of every citizen. They impact the way of life and the behaviour of the latter.

To achieve that goal, his work pushes the boundaries by evolving at the crossroads of interdisciplinary collaborations such art, science, craft and new technologies.
