Born in 1981, Adrien Rovero holds a Master’s in Industrial Design from the ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne Switzerland. Active in the realms of furniture, lighting and exhibition design, he opened his studio in Renens in 2006.
He thinks up and designs objects for such highend brand stores as Hermes (France), Pfister (Switzerland), Droog Design (Holland), Campeggi (Italy), Nanoo (Switzerland), Tectona (France) and the Cristallerie Saint-Louis (France). His pieces are on display in a number of renowned galleries, including the Galerie Kreo (Paris), Libby Sellers (London), and the Galerie Ormond (Geneva).
Clients availing themselves of his exhibition design talents include such institutions as the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Grand-Hornu Images (Belgium), the Manufacture de Sevres (France), the mudac (Lausanne) and the Villa Noailles (France).
Adrien Rovero’s work is rooted in his keen observation of the details and needs of his surroundings. This inspires highly inventive designs, as uncluttered as they are effective, and comprising a formal vocabulary built up out of assemblage, repurposing and shifting around shapes, materials, references and purposes.
The Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Grand-Hornu Images (Belgium) and the mudac (Lausanne) have acquired works by this young designer to add to their collections.
