Bag It

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Bag It

with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard

For this project, the 1st year students had to design a bag, or a collection of bags (if that makes sense). Whether for hiking in the mountains, trout fishing, camera protection, carrying tools or everyday shopping. The type of bag, its use and the materials used were free, but mainly soft materials and textiles in all their forms, preferably sustainable: traditional, natural, technical, active, woven, non-woven, knitted, were favored. The following aspects should be at the heart of their thinking, and should be carefully researched: — Target use context; — Function, use and ergonomics; — Construction, production and materials.

Abundance & Scarcity

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Abundance & Scarcity

with Nadine Sterk

When we live in a society with so much abundance yet at the same time so much scarcity, how do we discern the resources around us? How can we look to our surroundings to learn about where things come from, or how we might apply them in our own lives? More importantly, how can we live more harmoniously with nature by respecting it and taking only what we need? Within the workshop held by Nadine Sterk from Atelier NL the BA Industrial Design students were asked to create tableware around the theme ‘Abundance & Scarcity' from vernacular earth collected together in the Sauvabelin woods in Lausanne. Students and crew had no hesitation in getting their hands (and clothes) dirty to knead, turn, form, glaze, and fire ceramic tableware that tells a story.
