Benjamin Bichsel is studying in the Master’s programme in Product Design at ECAL in Lausanne. Born in 1993 in Switzerland, he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the Academy of Art and Design Basel.

After working in Zurich as a product and store designer, he gained further experience as an intern at TAF Studio in Stockholm.

Furthermore, he founded his own company, which produces and markets the bag «Sanglier».

His projects were presented at various fairs in Milan, Paris, Cologne and Shenzhen.


Exploring and reinterpreting different components, materials and production methods are an essential part of his work. Developing new approaches of manufacturing and discovering new aspects of materials are at the core of the success of the bag «Sanglier» for example.
