Alexander Schul – Monomaterial Bra

Diploma project by Alexander Schul

Three points are problematic regarding the current method of bra production: the assembly usually consists of different materials, which makes the object difficult to recycle; the traditional sewing process takes time, resulting in outsourcing of labour into third world countries; and the use of standard parts and sizes does not allow much customisation, making bras often uncomfortable to wear. The Monomaterial Bra is a vision of how bras could be manufactured in the future. Using a robot arm, soft and hard layers of TPU can be extruded on a curvature, resulting in a bra made from a single material. The process is fully automated and allows for customisation.

ECAL x RBM by Flokk: The Future of School Seating

Studio project with Camille Blin, Margo Clavier

Innovative architecture, technology and design are shaping the future of education, challenging the norms for those creating learning spaces more than ever before. Danish furniture manufacturers RBM by Flokk have embarked on a semester-long design project with students from ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne (Switzerland). “What a great challenge for the students to collaborate with an important brand in order to create future experiences based on their experiences from the past! Back to school and to the future!” says Alexis Georgacopoulos, Director of ECAL. Based around the title, The Future of School Seating, the 1st year Master Product Design students worked with course leader and designer Camille Blin, assisted by Margo Clavier, to explore alternatives to today’s traditional school chair, specifically for children aged 6–12. “We tasked the students at ECAL to reimagine traditional school chairs and to design a product that fits seamlessly into the operating culture of future learning environments. We know that ways of teaching and learning are more diverse than ever before and we are excited to show off some great concepts from the ECAL 1st year Master Product Design students – the next generation of super talented designers,” explains .ystein Austad, Design Manager, RBM by Flokk. Located inside Konstnärshuset, a stunning and historical art gallery based in Central Stockholm,Education Reimagined invites visitors to experience an interactive exhibition of inspiring concepts presented by the students themselves. Visitors to Stockholm Design week can enjoy a fascinating glimpse into how young designers envision education spaces of the future.
