About me
My name is Flavia Bon and I’m a traditionally trained tailor, a graduate in Fashion- and Product design and a self-taught maker. After working for different companies in Switzerland, Iceland and the Netherlands, I founded STUDIO BON where I materialise my experience from the past 15 years and share it with a diverse clientele. The focus is on developing abstract ideas into concrete products through design, material, construction and storytelling. Product development is my core skill, having worked the past years in this field, I gained insights and experience especially in developing soft goods and leather goods. Starting with a vision of a product or a concept I go straight into prototyping mode - patternmaking, material development, technical problem solving and testing. Going through all these stages will end up in detailed information that is ready to send to manufacturers and one step further to the final product. This way of working enables me to get in contact with different people from the industry and to create a dialogue which is based on mutual learning and results in highly functional and long living products.
