Art and Design or Art Design?

Welcome to my world of furniture and art, where every piece comes to life with a captivating story and a touch of soul. I'm Fabian Bolliger, born 1995 in Baden Switzerland, a Swiss designer, artist, and carpenter, driven by a passion for creating unique furniture and artwork. My creative process is deeply rooted in the rich tapestry of my life's experiences, primarily drawing inspiration from my extensive travels, cherished moments, and the array of emotions and feelings that color my existence.

I believe that every object should have its own tale to tell, making it truly special and one of a kind. As I blend abstract art with furniture design, I bridge the gap between creativity and functionality, infusing everyday objects with a profound sense of artistic expression. My craft is guided by a unique painting technique, where I apply and remove layers of varnish with precision, using various carpenter tools. This artistic process takes on a life of its own, especially when I work with wood, steel, and aluminum, resulting in creations that seamlessly integrate into my furniture and objects, offering limitless possibilities.

As a devoted carpenter and craftsman, I take personal ownership of every project, from its very conception to its final execution. Each piece that leaves my workshop carries not only my heart and soul but also the wisdom and expertise amassed throughout the years. With a relentless commitment to quality, function, and uniqueness, my work culminates in masterpieces that bring joy and beauty to your space. Beyond crafting distinctive furniture, I also breathe life into paintings, lighting fixtures, light installations, and art installations.

I firmly believe that a piece of furniture should transcend mere functionality; it should evoke emotions, memories, and feelings. And that's precisely what I aim to achieve with every artwork and furniture piece. My creative journey is a perpetual exploration, drawing upon the plethora of experiences and emotions that have shaped me. I invite you to delve into my world, where the essence of my travels, life's moments, and profound emotions converge into transformative pieces of art. Come visit me in my Studio or at one of my exhibitions, and together, let's celebrate the boundless beauty of inspiration and artistry.
