One minute repeater

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

One minute repeater

Collaboration with Alain Bellet, Vincent Jacquier, Pauline Saglio, Mathieu Rivier, Guilhem Moreau, Philippe-Albert Lefebvre, Matthieu Minguet

On the occasion of the 24th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which took place in Geneva from 20th to 24th January 2014, the ECAL/ University of Art & Design Lausanne created, for watchmaker Vacheron Constantin, a special installation named “The Minute Repeater”. This installation is the result of a research work directed at ECAL by Vincent Jacquier, Head of Visual Communication Department, and Alain Bellet, Head of Bachelor Media & Interaction Design. This research, which brings together students from both Bachelor in Media & Interaction Design and Industrial Design, permitted to develop a stand for the watchmaker based in Geneva. Not less than 12 screens reveal the oneiric sense of the Calibre 1731 of Vacheron Constantin. Thank to the animations unveiled on each screen by the magic of magnifying glasses, ECAL proposes its interpretation of this minute repeater movement, known to be the flattest on the market. Animations, production and technical development : Pauline Saglio, Mathieu Rivier, Guilhem Moreau With the help of : Philippe-Albert Lefebvre, Matthieu Minguet Students involved in the project : Laurent Bernaert, Nicolas Nahornyj, Hélène Zeis

Souvenir items for The Olympic Museum

Souvenir items for The Olympic Museum

Studio project with Hector Serrano

To mark the reopening of The Olympic Museum, the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne has been working on designing souvenir items for the Museum shop, created by Bachelor of Industrial Design students after a workshop with Hector Serrano, a Spanish designer based in Valencia. Two of these projects are set to go on sale in the Museum shop shortly.  The aim was to create a collection of souvenirs which reflect the spirit of Olympism and The Museum in a contemporary, fun way. Using his experience in this area, Spanish designer Hector Serrano gave the students some tips on what makes a successful souvenir item. The students came up with around 30 proposals, which were submitted to a jury composed of Olympic Museum and IOC employees.

Low-Tech Factory

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!
