Priscille Jotzu (*1990) is a French born designer, artist and researcher. She lives and works in Zurich. With a perspective focused on experimentation, conceptual thinking and research into a singularity, she investigates our relation to the daily mundane artefacts, more specifically through the spectrum of the lower senses. She completed her education within the design department of the Beaux-arts school of Angers, France (BA and MA Object Design) as well as at Zurich University of the Arts (MA Trends&Identity) where she studied strategic and visual design, trends and future forecasting and empirical social research. Her expertise range from creative consultancy with a focus on scents and materials, creation and production of custom-made objects and set design as well as future research with focus on innovation, prospective objects and design fiction. She works both on commissioned and self-initiated projects in the scope of design and art, producing one-of-a-kind artefacts and speculative objects that aim to stretch the narratives of the real and give space to our imaginaries.
