Julie Richoz (1990) is a French-Swiss designer. After graduating from ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne), she worked with Pierre Charpin as a project assistant.
In 2012, she set up her design studio in Paris where she developed her own style, imbued with curiosity and sensitivity, through her objects. That same year, Julie Richoz won the Grand Prix of Villa Noailles Design Parade (Hyères, France).
The designer participates in several residencies, notably at the Cité de la Céramique in Sèvres, as well as at the CIRVA (International Centre for Glass and Plastic Arts) in Marseille. It is an opportunity for her to exploit their materials and know-how. The fruit of her work was then presented during a solo travelling exhibition at the Design Parade 8 in Hyères, at the IMM Cologne, and at the Design Week in Paris.
In addition to her collaboration with Gallery Kreo, she also works with companies such as Alessi and Artecnica.
In 2015, she received the Swiss Design Award, as part of a major national design competition in Switzerland, organized every year by the OFC (Federal Office of Culture) since 1918.
