Julie Richoz (Switzerland, 1990). After growing up in La Rochelle, in 2008 she returned to her country of origin and enrolled at ECAL (the Lausanne School of Art), where she took a four-year course in industrial design. In 2010, she designed "Fierzo" for Alessi. It is an office dividing wall that has been displayed at various fairs from Milan to Tokyo and Brussels. In 2011, she was part of the Nestlé Chocolate Centre of Excellence team. This internship allowed her to explore the theme of culinary design. The following year she participated in the "Too Cool for School" exhibition organized by ECAL during the International Furniture Fair in Milan, where she presented a research project on colour. In 2012, she was selected to present her creations at the Design Parade 7, in Villa Noailles in Hyères, France.
