Abundance & Scarcity

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Abundance & Scarcity

with Nadine Sterk

When we live in a society with so much abundance yet at the same time so much scarcity, how do we discern the resources around us? How can we look to our surroundings to learn about where things come from, or how we might apply them in our own lives? More importantly, how can we live more harmoniously with nature by respecting it and taking only what we need? Within the workshop held by Nadine Sterk from Atelier NL the BA Industrial Design students were asked to create tableware around the theme ‘Abundance & Scarcity' from vernacular earth collected together in the Sauvabelin woods in Lausanne. Students and crew had no hesitation in getting their hands (and clothes) dirty to knead, turn, form, glaze, and fire ceramic tableware that tells a story.

Fanny Bichet – Gassy

with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei

Let us consider time as a tool. In a space-time, a series of events, phenomena and transformations take place. Consuming seasonal products means respecting the natural life cycle of agricultural products. Fermentation is a preservation process that improves the nutrients of fruits and vegetables over time while developing an umami taste. This project consists of a series of three jars for lacto-fermentation. The shape and function refers to the hourglass. In one direction, liquid and solid combine: fermentation is in progress. In the other, they are separated for easy serving. Accompanied by a booklet with ten recipes, it is used following a seasonal cycle to prolong and enhance our pleasure when consuming our favourite products.

Theodore Simon – Lari

with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei

During my previous studies in micro-engineering, my curiosity for the technical nature of production was sharpened, particularly towards the elasticity of different materials. Lari stems from research on compliant mechanisms which make use of that elasticity to provide motion, thus reducing the number of parts, simplifying production and facilitating recycling. This kitchen scale, entirely made of plastic, consists of two parts. The item to be weighed is disposed on the tray which is linked to the base by two flexible parallel beams. This allows the tray to remain level. The other part is a flexible indicator actuated by the movement of the tray which allows calibration to zero by sliding in the base.

Clara Bertière – Yum

with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei

During a visit at the CHUV, I noticed that there were no specific dishes for small children. Parents most often have to bring their own glasses or cutlery. This is why I created Yum, a set of tableware accessories for hospitalised children. The silicone set includes a children’s plate rim for children who can only use one arm, a holder for glass jars, and handles to slide over cutlery which help improve the child’s grip. With Yum, children are more autonomous and eating becomes more enjoyable thanks to the colours and shapes. Meals become a moment of conviviality with the handles of the cutlery that turn into playful companions!

Lucie De Martin – t-Plates

with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

With the increase in home deliveries, the accumulation of single-use packaging is becoming a problem. While biodegradable items are the trend, new laws are being considered to ban them because of their non-recyclable nature. The most promising alternative therefore seems to be reusable tableware. t-Plates are reusable boxes for food delivery. The aim of the project is to significantly reduce the amount of waste and to accompany users towards more environmentally-friendly consumption. In order to ensure that the ecological message is consistent, the use of plastic materials is replaced by materials such as steel, textile or rubber. The shape of the proposed containers and elements is a synthesis of the requirements.

Julien Lindt – Jiko

with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Julie Richoz, Maddalena Casadei

Jiko is an outdoor wood-burning oven. It is inspired by African clay ovens known for their high efficiency in burning wood, which therefore have low CO2 emissions. I wanted to bring this object into our way of life, in our countries.  Domestic cooking is getting increasingly poor; I think we have lost the taste for cooking, especially with fire, which I think is the most beautiful and delicious way to cook food. Jiko is more ecological and just as efficient as our high-tech kitchens. Because of its modularity, it is easy to use and allows for a wide variety of cooking methods. In addition, its multi-directional shape allows people to gather together and create a friendly atmosphere.

with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Nowadays, we produce more and more waste. In an ecological and civic approach, composting areas have been developed in gardens and in composting centres. However, only 10% of this waste is truly recycled and composters do not offer solutions for apartments. T-Lom is a terracotta vermicomposter, designed for one to three people, to hang on your balcony. It takes up very little space and makes it easy to recover its precious juice, a powerful fertiliser for your plants.

Charlotte Piau – Nommo

with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei

“Nommo” features a pair of containers designed to prepare hot and cold infusions such as coffee, tea and flavoured waters. With this project I focused on the issue of rituals and what the preparation of these different drinks has in common. Each container is designed with a particular material in accordance with the type of infusion to which it is dedicated. The infusion is made with a filter common to these different elements. This project aims to bring the preparation of infusion back to the centre of the table to create opportunities for sharing.

Dora Hayat – Tote

with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei

“Tote” is a shopping bag on wheels which, when not used, can accompany its user throughout the day without taking up too much space. As a student I usually go shopping right after school. Strictly designed for a round trip to the supermarket, the traditional caddy is too bulky to be carried around all day. With “Tote”, I sought to combine the compact look of a tote bag, carried over the shoulder, with the practical side of a shopping cart on wheels. With a few simple gestures, it transforms from its folded position to its practical function.

Mention Très bien In most households the dining table is at the heart of the action. It is seen as a lively place, where people eat, work, play and cook but most of all, where people gather together. “Emineo” is a height-adjustable dining table that can be adjusted with the help of a piston for various possible uses.

Nadia El-Hindi – Chef !

with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei

Immersion into the highly codified world of cutlery made me discover the delicate and threatening duality of knives. Guided by my observations of the forms and details relating to steel work, I chose to open up the boundaries of this field with the help of a craftsman. Thus, I created “Chef!”, a line of kitchen knives that combines the intelligence of craftsmanship with the precision of the industry. The steel blade, protected by a natural anti-corrosive treatment called “seasoning”, is attached to the handle thanks to assembly that is directly inspired by hammers.

Estelle Rougerie – Clip

with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei

This project addresses the temporality of furniture. When does one need a table, for how long, and for what use? “Clip” is an auxiliary table made from wood, intended for indoor and outdoor use and to meet daily needs.  It can easily be assembled, moved, disassembled and stored. The top is attached to the legs with a clip system. Thanks to the use of wood, the table fits comfortably in a variety of environments. For an aperitif, an improvised meal or a sociable moment, one clip and Bob’s your uncle!

Figure Libre

with Elric Petit

Figure libre is an industrial design project realized in correlation with the thesis topic of the 3rd year students. They were advised to choose a field that the students would like to pursue after their studies. This free exercise allowed each student to express themselves on the subject of their choice. Whether it was about furniture, mobility, connected objects or so many other possible subjects, each subject treated seriously became fascinating.
