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 completed a master’s degree in product design at ECAL University of Art and Design Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2020.

Sharing his time between architecture and product design his aim is to tackle issues on different scales by keeping the focus on humans. 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.

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 collaborate on innovative projects with leading companies. His practice has led him to work notably with Samsung, Swiss Federal Railways, ABB Robotics, ECAL, the International Olympic Committee, Mobatime, K-Tech or UEFA. In 2020, he started a collaboration as a part-time Visiting Researcher with the Essential Tech Center at EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).
