Fabrice Frankiel, born in Paris in 1973, was gifted with
observational skills and exceptional ability in drawing,
especially croquis. Hence, in his younger years he got interested in design and joined the prestigious Design & Arts
academy "école Boulle" in Paris.
He was totally absorbed with his works related to industrial
design during his schooldays. For graduation he created
innovative designs for perfume bottles and furniture and
draw the attention of recruiters from major brands, who
were fascinated by Fabrice's creations.
While working for the OPEX design project, whereas Minimalism and Uniqueness were the themes, his creations were
put into spotlight, which was also the reason for him to take
a step into the watch industry.
So, Fabrice Frankiel joined the OPEX and OXYGEN brand
design team for a few years, where he gained valuable
experiences. During this time, he got himself the nickname
"Mr Europe" across the European and Asian design community. A symbolic name, which represented his design style of
Fabrice Frankiel's latest project is strongly motivated by the
idea of linking Europe and Asia. "Frankiel & You" stands for
an universal link between You and Me and All of us. This
project leads to the opening of his own "Frankiel & You"
boutique in Paris. So far he has gathered numerous fans of
his works from Paris, Milan, Berlin, Barcelona, along the
Middle East and all the way to Asia, including Hong Kong,
Japan and Korea.
Today, Zaspero Swiss is proud to announce Frankiel Fabrice
as Chief designer.
