About

Christope Guberan is a 33-year-old product designer based in Switzerland. His work is the fruit of material testings and observations. This interest started while studying architectural drawing and was cultivated further as an industrial designer at the Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne ECAL. This practice has led to opportunities to work and produce objects with several leading companies such as Nestlé, Alessi, USM, Steelecase and Google. In 2014 Christophe moved to Boston where he started a collaboration with MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He still collaborates on experiments together with MIT’s Self Assembly Lab.
