I am Tabea Wschiansky, a designer based in Zurich. After graduating in Visual Communication at the Schule für Gestaltung Biel, I studied Industrial Design at the School of Arts (BA, ZHdK) in Zurich. I worked at Buero Freiheit, VIU eyewear, Normann Copenhagen and at ON running as a footwear designer. Next to that I am working as a freelance designer and creative consultant for brands like Urbany’s, Studio ysh, Bestsmile, Hair&Skin and Earlybird.
In 2023 I co-founded VOID, a gallery and studio space for art and design, where I work on freelance and self-initiated projects.
I enjoy working in different disciplines with many different people and environments. Over the years I have focused on textile design, interior design/architecture, fashion design, styling and creative direction. Always on the lookout for details and a product that is visually pleasing, but also technically and ethically functional.
