Wandsworth Creatives

Roch H Biel is an industrial designer originally from Barcelona. He is currently living and working in Wandsworth.

Roc H Biel is an industrial designer originally from Barcelona, where he practically grew up in my father’s workshop making special FX for films. Although his background is Audio Engineering (BA, First Class), he has always had a foot in many areas of engineering and arts, drawing a path between creativity and technicality.

At the Royal College of Art, he has started to build on my vision of how to design and innovate to create future-proof products. Influenced by minimalism, he believes in the importance of creating products where simplification settles in its intrinsic values determining its functionality, manufacturing, aesthetics and therefore, sustainability, and giving sensitive attention to the details to enhance the interaction experience.

Wandsworth Creatives is part of an ongoing strand of Creative Careers work in the borough and is funded by Creative Wandsworth Cultural Education Partnership. The aim of the films is to increase awareness of a variety of creative career pathways and highlight Wandsworth based workplaces and creative opportunities, inspiring the next generation of creatives.
