Kevin Fries joins Aroma as retail designer and senior concept developer of Pfeffermint. While studying industrial design, he met his design partner Jakob Zumbühl. Together they created various projects, furniture and products, such as the Wald-Haus lamp or various objects for Eternit. Jasper Morrison honoured their debut product in his exhibition at the Museum of Design. Further career stations were Freitag and Mooris.ch.
Enthusiastic about material, product and media design, Martina Horber learned cross-media storytelling in the Bachelor Multimedia Engineering course. In addition to her own exhibitions, as a concept designer she creates spaces where brands become experiences. "Their spatial understanding of design and the courage to try out new things fit perfectly with our culture," says Roger Stämpfli, Executive Creative Director of Aroma.
