About me
The studio is dedicated to create visually appealing yet technically innovative designs. Projects are based on a keen interest for new materials and techniques available for industrial production as well as a playful approach to deconstructing, displacing and re-contextualise components and visual codes found in the everyday. The studio offers services in the fields of product, furniture, fashion accessories and exhibition design. Alexandra Gerber (b.1987) is a Swiss-French designer who established her own practice in London in 2016, alongside pursuing freelance-based projects for external clients. After obtaining a Master Degree in Product Design from Ecal in Lausanne and a Bachelor Degree from the Esad School of Art & Design in Strasbourg, she worked for four years as a Special Project Designer for Tom Dixon for whom she was leading large scale brand partnership projects among which she worked on three collections of accessories for Adidas and a furniture program for Ikea which won a red dot award in 2018. Previously she has worked for Studio Nitzan Cohen, Atelier Pierre Charpin and the fashion label Bless Gmbh. She contributed to international shows such as U-Joints in for the Salone del Mobile in Milan (2018) and Design Miami/Art Basel (2018) and was finalist 2 times in the Swiss Design Award (2012 and 2018) and at the Design Parade Festival (in 2009).
