BUREAU LAUPER, based in Zürich, Switzerland, is a practice specialized in industrial design and interior architecture.
Combining craftsmanship, technology and the arts, the studio’s work is characterized by a holistic ethos made tangible through industrial products, objects and architectural spaces. Rich in meaning, relevant in context and unapologetic in function. Our focus lies in an overarching exploration of different fields of work, like manufacturing processes, technologies, history or the arts - to discover the potential that lies within them.
Miguel Lauper founded bureau lauper after 10 years of working experience in the technical field and his studies in industrial design at the university of arts in Zürich (ZHdK) and at the école cantonale d’art in Lausanne (ECAL).
