About

As a digital artisan, I explore the possibilities given by open source software and hardware, creative coding and 3D printing, combining these tools with traditional techniques and handwork. 
I create collections of 3D printed jewelry that highlight the aesthetics and possibilities of digital fabrication and are carefully finished by hand. I also design custom jewelry and products and lend my expertise in the field of digital design and fabrication (3D printing).

Why digimorphé? “digi- comes from the Latin word digitus, “finger”. The word “digital” is also derived from digitus. The second part, “-morphé”, is ancient Greek for “form” or “shape”. In [ digimorphé ] these meanings are combined to express the blend of handmade and digital craftsmanship that distinguishes the label.

[ digimorphé ] is the result of my diverse interests and passions. I hold an MA degree in Classical Archeology from the University of Basel and have several years of work experience in this field, participating in archaeological excavations and collaborating with different museums and cultural and scientific institutions in various countries. Dealing with the material cultures of the past let me to discover the world of contemporary design. For example, the context of use of an artifact, as well as the understanding of diverse manufacturing and production techniques, are essential not only for studying ancient cultures but also for designing today’s objects. The need for documentation drew me to photography and computer graphics. To deepen my knowledge of design and new media, I studied Digital Design and Management at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. When I later discovered the open source programming language “Processing” and the electronics prototyping platform “Arduino”, I decided to enroll in the postgraduate Master of Advanced Studies in Interaction Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland, graduating in 2012. One year later I founded [ digimorphé ] in Zurich, where I currently live and work.
