Adrian Weidmann is a product and furniture designer with a background in Swiss engineering.
His degree project won him a James Dyson Award and a scholarship from the Swiss Federal Office, with which he moved to London in 2008.
Over the following decade, he worked for Industrial Facility, Foster + Partners, Heatherwick Studio and Marc Newson.
Working with these personalities, its involved engineers, architects, designers and artists in various projects gave him a good understanding of not only a broad range of designs, but also in different scales and changing requirements.
His involvement goes from Bill Viola’s video installation for London’s St. Paul’s cathedral, over a large and globally produced bathroom range in various materials to public furniture in Marseille’s harbour to Prada’s hand crafted silver sailing trophy and continued with a fly-knitted bag for Louis Vuitton.
During these years, he also chased his own projects, freelanced and was commissioned.
Honest materials, modern production processes, crafts, ergonomics, immaculate finishes and fully serviceable end products are only a few characteristics of his designs.
Natural and sustainable materials and processes have always been a main focus in his work and will remain a strong foundation for long lasting and well ageing products.
His products never follow trends nor compromise on quality.
Some clients he worked with and learned from: BMC bicycles, Lacie, Issey Myiake, Muji, Design Museum, Molteni&C, Louis Poulsen, Walter Knoll, Lumina lighting, Bill Viola Studio, Porcelanosa, Tribeca Holdings, Charabanc, Taschen, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Margent Farm.
