Collaboration with Baccarat 2012

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Baccarat 2012

Collaboration with Philippe Jarrigeon, Bethan Laura Wood

Following the collaboration initiated in 2011 around the iconic Harcourt glass, Baccarat and ECAL are continuing their common reflection in 2012. The students of the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship are all working on the same global project, combining object design, scenography, photography and the conception of a final publication. Supervised by London designer Bethan Laura Wood and Parisian photographer Philippe Jarrigeon, each group of students set out to revisit the universal theme of the Vase, starting from the same basic conical shape and questioning all of the Manufacture's know-how. Based on the principles of cutting, engraving, sandblasting and gilding, Vase-O-Rama was created, a hybrid and abundant collection, like a panorama.

Collaboration with Audemars Piguet 2012

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Audemars Piguet 2012

Collaboration with Thilo Alex Brunner

For this workshop with the Swiss designer Thilo Brunner, Audemars Piguet asked the students to design small objects that could be offered to the brand's customers. Many projects were developed and prototyped in order to present a large selection of ideas. From the bird call found in the Vallée de Joux, through a topographical representation of the same region, to a glossary of the parts that make up a watch, all the projects draw their references from the universe of the Haute Horlogerie brand.
