Thilo Brunner

Head of Design

Thilo is Head Of Design at «On», a running shoe and apparel company based in Zurich. He leads a team of 25 product, shoe and apparel designers and developers.

Before fully joining On, Thilo has established and built his own product design agency BMCO and ran it for ten years. In parallel, he has founded the Swiss knife brand MALVAUX. And for an entire decade, Thilo combined his position in the design economy with his role as professor for product design at ECAL design school in Lausanne where he tutored projects and lead the MA Product Design branch.

Thilo likes to think that there is a reason that the word «functionality» begins with «FUN». He sees design as life long journey in which a designer should quit his job immediately when he feels that he has eventually arrived.
