About Robert Wettstein

I live and work in Zurich, Switzerland. My studio is centrally located in the city and close to a green park. I work in product design, lighting design and furniture. My work is therefore related to space and involves many artistic techniques, such as photography and painting.
I work as a lecturer and mentor at the Zurich University of the Arts. My mother tongue is Swiss German.

Education

I have completed a medical vocational training in orthopaedic technology. This is a craft which has enabled me to work with many different materials. Plaster, metal and fibre composite plastics I soon understood as creative material and made free sculptures and furniture. Afterwards I have studied :
Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) Design,Art & Inovation, 2009, Basel FHNW.
Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS), “Material and art techniques” 2018, Zürich ZHdK / SIK (Schweizerische Institut für Kunstwissenschaft)
