Google X // Lead Designer of Glass
Isabelle Olsson is the lead designer of Glass, one of the products from inside Google[x]. She joined the team in 2011, when the prototype was still a phone attached to a scuba mask, and has since guided the team to iterate towards a minimalist design language for Glass.
Prior to joining Google, Isabelle worked at Fuseproject designing a wide variety of products, ranging from tablets and TVs, to exhibitions and accessories. She has also designed several furniture pieces exhibited at Milan Furniture Fair.
Isabelle grew up in Sweden and was influenced early on by Scandinavian minimalist design. She has a Masters degree in Fine Arts and Industrial Design from Lund University and was selected by Wallpaper magazine as one of the world's most promising design graduates.
Her ultimate goal as a designer is to make people's lives easier and more beautiful.
