Eugénie Perrin – Pince
Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz
Pince is a continuation of my dissertation dedicated to objects made by farmers, who design their tools from existing objects that they reappropriate and transform to meet their own needs. Inspired by a homemade lamp found on a farm, Pince takes advantage of the raw and singular aspect of these objects, which are designed to be functional before any aesthetic consideration. The project thus borrows the robustness and the simplicity of design and construction from the typology of the tool and features a swivel head and fixing system that can be adapted to all types of supports. It is thus suitable for both DIY enthusiasts and craftspeople. Inspired by homemade objects, Pince is a product that has been designed in an industrial, ergonomic and aesthetic way.
