Ecal x Mini Rethinking the Wheel

Workshop with Christophe Guberan, Margo Clavier

"Rethinking the Wheel" – a series of projets on steering wheels. Will we be controlling our cars through voice recognition in future? With a soft toy? How about a pizza box? The digital transformation and electrification of cars has opened up a world of possibilities at the wheel. MINI’s design team and ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne have collaborated closely on a sophisticated design study to develop unexpected ideas for the future of steering wheels. Under the direction of ECAL tutors Camille Blin and Christophe Guberan, Master students in Product Design have addressed the topic and come up with spectacular designs, developing, improving and ultimately achieving their vision in ongoing consultation with Christian Bauer, Head of Interior Design at MINI. The result: nine innovative and surprising designs that question existing shapes and materials – and, as such, the way in which we might interact with our cars in the future – with a lot of creativity.

Macula Workshop avec David Douard

Workshop with David Douard, Lucas Erin

Questionner l’économie des images et l’idée d’authorship à travers un exercice de manipulations d’images digitales vers un objet physique. Remettre en question le rapport d’une génération artistique « Google » qui se servait volontiers dans un gouffre d’image internet pour les manipuler à foison. Aujourd’hui ce rapport est contesté par de nouvelles technologies servant et à donner une valeur et une authenticité au détournement ( NFT ) David Douard propose ainsi un workshop de sérigraphie sur 3 jours comme un moment de jouissance productive où les enjeux seraient l’appropriation par la superposition. C’est une réflexion sur l’image à capturer et sur la potentialité subjective d’une image à travers le rapport au texte, la poésie ou le langage.

Junkyard Diving

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Junkyard Diving

Workshop with Philippe Malouin, Silvio Rebholz

"Form follows function" is an expression attributed to the modernist architect Louis Sullivan. It is a statement that is quite relevant to industrial design. On the other hand, form can sometimes also determine function in a process of reverse exploration. During the workshop with Philippe Malouin, students were encouraged to look for new functions inspired by forms found in a metal recycling center. In this process, random discoveries and associations were made to generate a new and surprising vocabulary of forms.

Alternative Measuring Tools

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Alternative Measuring Tools

Workshop with Manuel Krebs (NORM), Elie Fazel

Measuring, it seems, is one of the dominant concerns of modern society. We measure ourselves, our weight, our height, our temperature, from head to toe, from collar size to shoe size. We measure what is around us, from tiny to incredibly large. We measure time (from seconds to lifetimes), we measure the familiar (length, weight, volume) and the unusual (sound, radiation, voltage), we have measurement systems for everyday life and for experts. For this workshop, the students of the Bachelor Industrial Design have developed alternative measuring devices.

Workshop Mårten Lange

Workshop with Mårten Lange, Matthieu Croizier

Failure is necessary and is part of the artistic development that is articulated by risk taking, luck, ambition, fear and freedom.

The final results are presented in various forms: editions, simple prints or more complex hangings and videos.

Workshop Paolo Wood

PHOTOGRAPHY

Workshop Paolo Wood

Workshop with Paolo Wood, Sarah Koeke

It has been established that photography is a language. With all its limitations and peculiarities, but a language anyway. Photography is often a relatively poor language that constantly repeats the same nouns and verbs. In the documentary tradition, the range of subjects treated is quite limited and recurrent, and for this reason, in order to make photographs, one must learn and master this language: its vocabulary, its grammar and its history.
