Born in 1984, Fabien Roy is a swiss designer and architect originally from and living in the Swiss Jura Mountains. Graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from The School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg (Switzerland), he then completed a master’s degree in product design at ECAL University of Art and Design Lausanne.

After working more than ten years as an architect, he decided to share his time by exploring product design. In 2018, he set up his own studio. His design look upon societal and environmental matters responsibly. To achieve that goal, his work pushes the boundaries by evolving at the crossroads of interdisciplinary collaborations such art, science, craft and new technologies. The uniqueness of the studio lies in the wide range of expertise, from extensive knowledge of woodworking, architecture, to the development of products based on cutting-edge technologies.

While part of his work is based on the Jura Mountains heritage by reinterpreting local crafts in a contemporary way, he also devotes his time to develop interior design projects or to collaborate on innovative projects with leading companies. His practice has led him to collaborate with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Samsung, Swiss Federal Railways, ABB Robotics, ECAL, the International Olympic Committee or Mobatime.
