Studio project, ECAL 2014
in MASTER PRODUCT DESIGN
Teacher(s): Camille Blin, Ronan Bouroullec
With the kind support of The Woolmark Company and Mover Sportswear.
Workshop led by Ronan Bouroullec and Camille Blin, assisted by Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard. Result of a one week workshop with the students of the Master in Product design, these installations are celebrating the numerous qualities of Merino wool in an unconventional way.
Wool is a material that is part of our everyday lives. It has a particular meaning to everybody without having any specific shape or colour.
Our goal during this workshop week was to give shape to those references we all have towards this product. It started without any preconceived idea on what the end result would look like. By experimenting and playing around with the different states of this material, the students designed some unexpected installations. Each one of them acts like a little story, using movement as a way to express itself.
