Bisse

For this project the students were asked to design a collective installation that was part of the Geneva Sculpture Garden exhibition that took place in the Parc des Eaux-Vives and the Grange from June 12 to September 10, 2020. In the Parc des Eaux-Vives, there are some classic "garden" features, including a picturesque chalet recovered from the 1896 national exhibition. The students had to create a collective bisse (historical irrigation channels of the Valais) upstream from the chalet. What interactions with the public can this generate? How to take advantage of the flow generated by water and gravity?

Galerie des Bustes

Transversal project with Adrien Rovero

The Festival Images is a free event focused on contemporary images. The specificity of the Festival Images is to present monumental photography in the open air, while presenting projects around the image in a broader sense indoors. For the 2018 edition, ECAL was for the fourth time associated with the festival by pursuing the search for specific devices for outdoor image exhibitions. It is a question of imagining a photo booth. A space to take pictures of yourself alone or with others. The initiation, the fund, the global process will have to take the form of a real experience and interactivity. It is necessary to invent a device that is close to the installation, that is playful and that does not only provide a technical solution to the shooting. For the festival, this installation represents a real expectation of the audience as well as an income since each image costs 5.- Chf.

Workshop Bloc studios

Workshop with Joséphine Choquet (Thévoz Choquet), Virgile Thévoz (Thévoz Choquet)

Marble connotes weight, stability and robustness, and is a quintessentially noble material. In light of this, what kind of objects are able to take full advantage of these properties? How can the sensations of balance or weight be fully expressed, while respecting the innate qualities and limits of this substance? This was the question that ECAL /University of Art and Design Lausanne Industrial Design Bachelor’s students addressed in 2016 at a workshop led by Swiss designers Joséphine Choquet and Virgile Thévoz. This collection has been jointly developed over recent years by Bloc studios and ECAL, and comprises a selection of objects that focus on the rational balance between materials and proportions – playful ball-joint mirrors, punk marble plates pierced through with steel, marble vases in tension with aluminium, minimal tub plugs and mesmerising wedged vases.

Workshop with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard

Following a one week collaborative workshop between ECAL’s 2ndyear Industrial Design students and Hongik University’s Product and Space Design students, where in mixed teams, they worked on a range of MASKS to cover, disguise, embellish, cloak, protect, decorate or enhance people. Through this project, they shared and discovered their mutual cultures and habits. The outcome is a series of colourful and surprising masks reinterpreting this ancestral object, materialised with textiles and know-how harvested in the maze of Seoul’s enormous Dongdaemun market. Workshop realized as part of the Summer University '15 program of the Canton de Vaud, led by Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, assisted by Giulia Amelie Chehab and Marceau Avogadro.

Workshop with Christian Boucharenc (NUS), Elric Petit

Hawker Centre Singapore Summer University May 2014 This Summer University workshop on the Hawker Centre is a collaboration between the Division of Industrial Design, National University of Singapore and the ECAL / University of Art and Design Lausanne, Switzerland. Hawker Centres are traditional dinning halls where Singaporean gather to eat together daily. More than a restaurant, these places are a real melting pot of cultures in Singapore, mainly between the Chinese, Malays and Indians. The aim of the workshop was to immerse the students for one week in the heart of Singapore’s cosmopolitan culture through the Hawker Centres. ECAL and NUS students worked together and designed objects such as utensils, tableware packagings or signage that improves the experience of customers and cooks. All the prototypes have been produced in the NUS « prototyping lab ». This workshop allowed the students from both universities to share their know-how in the field of industrial design. The result of this research reflects a wide variety of design solutions that improves Hawker Centres in Singapore.

One minute repeater

Collaboration with Alain Bellet, Vincent Jacquier

On the occasion of the 24th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which took place in Geneva from 20th to 24th January 2014, the ECAL/ University of Art & Design Lausanne created, for watchmaker Vacheron Constantin, a special installation named « The minute repeater ». This installation is the result of a research work directed at ECAL by Vincent Jacquier, Head of Visual Communication Department, and Alain Bellet, Head of Bachelor Media & Interaction Design. This research, which brings together students from both Bachelor in Media & Interaction Design and Industrial Design, permitted to develop a stand for the watchmaker based in Geneva. Not less than 12 screens reveal the oneiric sense of the Calibre 1731 of Vacheron Constantin. Thank to the animations unveiled on each screen by the magic of magnifying glasses, ECAL proposes its interpretation of this minute repeater movement, known to be the flattest on the market. Animations, production and technical development : Pauline Saglio, Mathieu Rivier, Guilhem Moreau with the help of : Philippe-Albert Lefebvre, Matthieu Minguet Students involved in the project : Laurent Bernaert, Nicolas Nahornyj, Hélène Zeis
