Taking inspiration from her observations on systems or materials which fascinates her, Julie Richoz re-appropriates their essence in order to create objects which exhibit a playful and ingenious simplicity.
Julie Richoz studied Industrial Design at ECAL/ University of Arts and Design Lausanne. As part of her studies, she worked with several brands such as Alessi and Nestlé and participated in exhibitions in Europe and Asia. In 2012, she won the Grand Prix du Jury at the competition Design Parade 7 organized by the Villa Noailles in Hyères. Thus, The Galerie Kreo offered her a grant to realize a free project. Currently she works as a designer in residency at Sèvres Cité de la céramique, where she discovers the know-how of the company and works on different objects in porcelain. At the same time, she collaborates with CIRVA / International Center for Research on glass and arts, where she realizes a vase together with the artisans.
