Sarah Hossli is a product designer based in Lucerne, Switzerland. Sarah’s design work is driven by her passion and interest in today’s cultural, societal, and ethical topics. She carefully analyses the social impacts of products while she creates objects that are both poetic and sensuous. In all her works, she explores and uses the unique properties and distinctive qualities of the material.


During her working life as a designer, she taught experimental three-dimensional sketching and furniture design at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, while at the same time working as an independent designer.

Sarah has completed her Master’s degree in Product Design at ECAL in 2020.


“I love the diversity of my design work and the inspiring environment that encapsulates my work. The different tasks and projects I embark on make every single day a journey of discovery.”
