Philippe Bestenheider

He was born in 1971 in Sion, Switzerland. After graduating in architecture, getting a Master in industrial design and important international experiences, he opens his own studio working between Switzerland and Milan. In 2010 he is awarded with the Italian Innovation Award for his Nanook chair. His projects are characterized by a rational but still sensual approach to the contemporary, mixing tradition and experimentation, between a computer-aided design and the workshop of a craftsman.
