Dimitri Bähler

BORN 1988

Swiss designer Dimitri Bähler launched his own studio in Biel in 2014 and has since been nominated for two Swiss Design Awards, directed a string of workshops and produced pieces for some of the world’s most adventurous design brands. He studied product design at ECAL in Switzerland and at Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands, before moving back to the area he grew up in to launch his practice. Bähler describes his approach as spontaneous, radical and poetic, but with a foundation in substantial material and structural research. In 2016, his experimental ceramics collection VPTC – created to explore the relationship between volumes, patterns, textures and colours by using both digital and traditional tools – was named as the grand prize winner at Biennale Interieur, the respected design biennial in Kortrijk, Belgium.
