Workshop with Chris Kabel, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard

For their graduation trip, the 3rd year students went to Istanbul. Accompanied by Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard and Chris Kabel and collaborating with students from Bilgi University, they had to create souvenirs of the city. Some were able to collaborate directly with local craftspeople. The projects were exhibited at the Istanbul Design Biennial at the end of this trip and had the chance to see their ECAL x Mac Guffin project also exhibited there at that time.

Low-Tech Factory

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Low-Tech Factory

Studio project with Chris Kabel

For its 14th edition, Langenthal Designers’ Saturday offers carte blanche to the ECAL/ University of Art and Design Lausanne. It provides the setting for the ECAL to present its exhibition entitled “Low-Tech Factory”, a selection of machines designed by Bachelor’s students of Industrial Design and Product at a workshop led by designer Chris Kabel. At Langenthal, factories are omnipresent. For this carte blanche, it seemed to us natural to ask students to look at showcasing the manufacturing process of an object, from the machine to the finished product. They therefore experimented with simple and ingenious shaping methods such as moulding, thermoforming and knitting to obtain finished products. “Low-Tech Factory” tackles the subject of automatic production beloved by designers, bringing together six entertaining machines which throughout the exhibition produce hats, sacks, lamps, and even popcorn!
