Dimitri Bähler is an independent designer, based in Biel, Switzerland. After finishing his studies at ECAL Lausanne and the Design Academy Eindhoven, Bähler founded his eponymous studio in 2014. Working from industrial design to unique pieces through installations, the elements of context, manufacturing processes and functionality are key influences in his work.
On His Design Philosophy
Working from an experimental approach, I am in constant search for the right tension between simple and complex, radical and poetic, abstract and figurative, experience and spontaneity. My work is driven by contrasts in general with a strong attraction to the essential.
On Scandinavian Design
I perceive Scandinavian design as something that is characterized by efficiency in many ways as well as being connected to a strong aesthetic sensibility. In that way, it is the new standard.
