Carlo Clopath (*1986) is a Swiss industrial designer who works with craftsmen, producers and research institutions primarily in Europe and Japan. Clopath feels connected to the tradition of craftsmanship, meaning the concentration on the essential and the continued development of the proven.
The designer’s sensitivity for the material surroundings and openness to its possibilities are reflected in his work. He looks for simple, functionally correct solutions — developed from the material and process — for essential, evident forms.
His work is richly varied and complex. His objects often awake associations and have symbolic overtones. His approach is very multisensorical – he creates atmospheres and his objects obviously live in a dialogue with histories, materials and meanings.
