Christophe Marchand Design

Christophe Marchand, born in 1965, is a designer, an industrial designer, an author, a teacher and a juror. He lectures at the École cantonale de Lausanne and is a guest professor at Berlin University of the Arts. His Zurich-based studio realises projects in the two- and three-dimensional field, with emphasis on “the design, development and the realisation of articles for everyday use.” Among the works of Christophe Marchand is also the exhibition design of the Museum of Design in Zurich. The focus of his interest is anonymous design, the production processes and the potential of materials. In a productive dialogue with the manufacturer he
develops tangible product strategies that also reflect a careful study of design theories.
