Nora Fatehi – Mirror Me-rror

Nora Fatehi – Mirror Me-rror

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

In an environment where the line between digital and tangible is becoming increasingly thin, having an existence in immaterial spaces implies shaping and maintaining an avatar that is often created in one’s own image. Living in these in-between worlds inevitably leads to the development of a more or less strong connection with one’s own digital representations. This is notably the case of my own avatar, with whom I share more than just a well-defined clothing style. In Mirror Me-rror, she and I become one. By using my physical and digital data to influence her abilities as my “virtual self”, I find myself constantly connected to her. With this project, I question the relationship that each of us nurtures with our digital identities and offer a gamified perspective of our own lives.

Alexandre Brunisholz – Erosio

Diploma project by Alexandre Brunisholz

The gorge, a reflection of time and of the power of nature, is a witness to the Earth’s transformation. Over the millennia, the passage of water has gradually carved a path in the depths of the Earth, creating a natural ruin with organic shapes and a mystical atmosphere. This project was developed based on the erosion of rock by water through the study of a selection of 12 Swiss gorges. A silver jewel created for each of the gorges was given back to nature, thanks to a machine that accelerates deterioration through a tumbling process with elements taken from each of the 12 sites. Erosio is a look book of this jewellery collection, documenting the research locations as well as the working process developed.

Angelo Barbattini – Annihiler le système des castes

Diploma project by Angelo Barbattini

Since I am half Indian and have studied in India, my graduation project mainly consists of a collection of saris (lit. “strips of cloth”), a traditional garment worn by women in India. The fabrics created are a modern interpretation of this rich cultural heritage. Through this project, my aim is to denounce the issues of discrimination observed in India, most known as the caste system – a system that is now illegal but which continues to be perpetuated and create inequalities. The concept of the project is to acknowledge the problem and through a modern, digitally printed, cotton sari, to communicate a message of equality and equal rights to humanity. The goal is to have activists wear these saris to perpetuate this utopian ideal of equality and abolish the caste system.

Kim Lissy – Pragmatic Gear

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Kim Lissy – Pragmatic Gear

Diploma project with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei, Silvio Rebholz

Pragmatic Gear is a brand that recovers scraps and end of rolls from various companies in Switzerland. The patterns are designed to be waste-free. I experimented with this by first presenting bags and then, in a second phase, I integrated garments for my degree. Each typology of garment and bag is constructed in the same way but with different textiles, resulting in a variety of falls and uses. The pieces are exclusive and limited in number according to arrivals.

Marine Bouvard – Mistral

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Silvio Rebholz

Interested by objects as evidence of a specific civilisation and culture, I returned to Provence to identify what characterises my culture and what underlies my identity. Mistral is an ode to the sun, to shadows, to strolling, and to time that lasts. I carried out research around a natural material: the straw. I met a hat-maker who passed on her knowledge and skills to me, and I designed a collection of objects that play with shadows, resulting in the creation of hats that are easy to carry around, so that you can take a bit of the South wherever you go.

Paul Carluy – Waspy Stoner Couch

Diploma project with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei, Silvio Rebholz

“I want the most comfortable stoner couch.” Eli asked me to create a stoner couch for his brand ERL. I chose to break down this bulky and all too often opaque object. Layers of covering are added on a tubular steel structure. The sofa is thus superimposed with different textiles, materials and volumes as if it were clothing. In the summer, a single thin layer is sufficient, while in the winter, you put on your puffy jacket. With each new layer, there is a new object. You can go from a Butterfly lounger to an upholstered armchair that you can sink into. The choice of covering can be both functional and stylistic.

Masen Al-Saghir – Jabal

Diploma project with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei, Silvio Rebholz

Jabal is a collection of plastic-free, repairable and recyclable mountain jackets. It consists of a jacket and a down jacket. The fastening has been redesigned with a fold system, without zips. It also allows the width of the jacket to be adjusted according to the number of layers worn. Jabal is made entirely of durable materials: high-density woven cotton, waxed cords and aluminium fasteners. The seams are heat-sealed with natural adhesive. The down jacket is filled with milkweed, a plant that is as light as feather but twice as insulating. No chemicals or watering are required for its production. The materials can be separated for easy recycling. Resin-impregnated patches are provided to repair snags.

Thaïs Nguyen Huu – Mises à nues

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Thaïs Nguyen Huu – Mises à nues

Diploma project by Thaïs Nguyen Huu

Mises à nues is a collection of five outfits. In my opinion, clothes are a reflection of who we are and the values we defend. Wearing an outfit is assuming one’s identity, being confident and loving oneself. Each outfit represents the series of gestures and attentions one can do for oneself to feel good and confident on a daily basis. Five women confided in me a part of their intimacy through a selfie and words they use to highlight their body. I then interpreted their stories and transcribed them on textile. Each fragment of life becomes a visual that is captured. Once worn, the static illustrations become a moving volume that takes our inner story to the outside world – out in the open, for ll to see.

Basil Dénéréaz – Reif

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Mention Très bien Through our entertainment media, partnerships and sponsored content are becoming omnipresent. Based on this observation, Reif i s a fictional account of the objectification of a digital influencer. Through different media created with computer generated images, we visualise the change of identity of this character who allocates areas of her body as advertising spaces, generating her metamorphosis from human to object. In order to realise the content for Reif , a process of digital production was set up, adjusting to the standards of avatar creation which affiliates this fiction to the current technical reality.

Sven Abplanalp – M–W256

Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei, Benoît Chastenet de Gery

“M–W256” is a project that started as a comprehensive analysis of fasteners from the textile industry. This research led me to work on the idea of symmetry through connectors while exploiting its advantages. Suited to a variety of daily situations and designed for urban mobility, “M–W256” is a bag that offers versatility. Developed specifically for this portable item, the androgynous clip enables the user to connect straps in many different configurations for greater adaptability.

Rodolphe Pupille – Tilt

Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei, Benoît Chastenet de Gery

“Tilt” is a shoe rack made of birch plywood. The two-way mirror front enables users to see themselves while providing a showcase for the shoes on display. The opening direction of the drawer is adjustable, meaning the “Tilt” shoe rack can be placed in a corner or in the middle of a wall. The inside of the drawer is lined with linoleum as a reference to collectable furniture. The neutral background enhances the details of each shoe while protecting the wood. Finally, a gradation in the opacity of the mirror highlights the worn pair, as a reinterpretation of angled shoe mirrors in shoe shops.

Figure Libre

Studio project with Elric Petit, Amandine Gini

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.

Alfatih Al Zouabi – BASE

Diploma project by Alfatih Al Zouabi

The image of a garment nowadays has more reach and value in the digital space than the physical one. And as we are embracing multiple personas at an ever-increasing pace, we see ourselves consuming more garments that quickly go to waste. Base is a clothing service offering an alternative economic model and a way to reflect on the nature of garments in the physical and the digital space. What does the physical garment look like when stripped down to its primary functions? And in what contexts can the digital garment be worn?

Interactive scarves

Collaboration with Pauline Saglio

When you match the prints of prints with a famous school of art and design, the result can only be explosive! Emilio Pucci pairs with the Ecole Cantonal d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL) for a collaboration born at Granaiolo, the brand’s archive and talent center nearby Florence. During a three-day workshop led by Vincent Jacquier, a selection of students and assistants from the school’s Visual Communication Department had the opportunity to explore and reinterpret signature prints. Interactive Scarves is the first of a series of surprising projects originated from their endeavors and achievements during the workshop. The designer Pauline Saglio has developed a three-pieced installation that proposes an innovative and poetic way to discover a scarf. The colors, shapes and compositions of each Emilio Pucci print are enhanced by light and sound to alter the perception of the iconic object, offering visitors a magical experience that stimulates all of the senses.

Tom Zambaz – It’s not quite the Hilton

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

It’s not quite the Hilton is a fashion film created for fashion designer Jonathan Ageneau’s diploma collection in which he imagined the hacker community’s changing room. The film refers to the “whistleblower” figure, presenting characters trapped in a blank space experiencing paranoia and boredom at the same time. Through its webcam, the user can interact with the film all along. This prolific collaboration was a great opportunity to design two distinct projects feeding off our exchanges throughout the project.
