Introduction Raphaël von Allmen is a product designer. From december 2009 till june 2010, he'll be working as a volunteer for MSABI in Ifakara (Tanzania) on projects related to wastewater treatment. Raphaël is motivated by the development of projects which address socio-ecological matters and include formal, technical or conceptual innovation. He believes the best way of improving things is by the active search of small solutions within reach. Born in Neuchatel (Switzerland) in 1983, Raphaël studied languages at high school, and after some travels, he graduated from ECAL in 2007 (école cantonale d'art de Lausanne), with a good training at conducting projects related to the design of objects. This implies the use of manual, conceptual and computing tools, like sketching, modelmaking, 3D-modelling, graphics and photography, as well as organisational, managment and social skills. His latest experience include product and furniture design, scenography of exhibitions and teaching assistanship in Zürich, Neuchâtel and Lausanne.
