Junkyard Diving

Workshop with Philippe Malouin, Silvio Rebholz

"Form follows function" is an expression attributed to the modernist architect Louis Sullivan. It is a statement that is quite relevant to industrial design. On the other hand, form can sometimes also determine function in a process of reverse exploration. During the workshop with Philippe Malouin, students were encouraged to look for new functions inspired by forms found in a metal recycling center. In this process, random discoveries and associations were made to generate a new and surprising vocabulary of forms.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Toc Toc Toc!

Studio project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Victor Jacquard

For this project, the 1st year students were asked to design a handle or door knob. They had to focus mainly on the part on which the hand rests when closing, opening, pulling or pushing a door. They were free to choose the type of handle, as long as it was compatible with an existing mechanism. The context of the object as well as its use and ergonomics were aspects that were at the heart of their project.
