Michel Charlot, 2016
After completing a degree in industrial design at the Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne (ECAL), Swiss designer Michel Charlot worked for Jasper Morrison Ltd in Paris, London and Tokyo. In 2011 he set up his own studio in Basel and has since worked for a number of prestigious clients. His collaboration with Vitra began in 2013.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
