Lucie De Martin – t-Plates

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

With the increase in home deliveries, the accumulation of single-use packaging is becoming a problem. While biodegradable items are the trend, new laws are being considered to ban them because of their non-recyclable nature. The most promising alternative therefore seems to be reusable tableware. t-Plates are reusable boxes for food delivery. The aim of the project is to significantly reduce the amount of waste and to accompany users towards more environmentally-friendly consumption. In order to ensure that the ecological message is consistent, the use of plastic materials is replaced by materials such as steel, textile or rubber. The shape of the proposed containers and elements is a synthesis of the requirements.

ECAL x MUJI: Compact Life

Studio project with Michel Charlot, Noelani Rutz

A collection of clever furniture and household accessories to help organise everyday life. Following the method of carefully observing our daily routines to identify unique needs and then creating intuitive and practical products, the Bachelor of Industrial Design students imagined a collection of clever furniture and household accessories to help organise our daily lives, under the guidance of designer Michel Charlot. As an important part of the development of MUJI products is based on detailed photographic studies in people's homes, the students were invited to follow the same process by documenting the spontaneous state of their own homes and other people's environments in order to reveal how they interact with the products, and to identify how the objects are used as direct inspiration for their design.

Forme Souple

Studio project with Julie Richoz, Giulia Amélie Chéhab

A series of objects made in textile where the volume and the pattern are on the same level of importance. This project was conceived by 2nd year Industrial Design Bachelor students.

Paper Park

Workshop with Emile Barret, Marie Douel

Marie Douel and Emile Barret from Hors Pistes led a workshop with the 2nd year bachelor in industrial design. They asked the students to create a maze made entirely from the paper waste of the ECAL printing centre. Based on the principle of the exquisite corpse, each group created one part of the labyrinth with a strong aesthetic and structural approach, allowing the visitor to get lost in distinct universes.

Ring My Bell

Studio project with Cédric Duchêne, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Mathieu Rivier, Marion Aeby, Lison Christe

DONG! TRRRRRR! Or maybe even GLING! Or BLING!, MHHHH! And sometimes even BRAOUM! ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne presents an offbeat collection of interactive doorbells developed by first-year Bachelor Industrial Design students, under the joint guidance of Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Head of Bachelor Industrial Design, and Mathieu Rivier, a Bachelor Media & Interaction Design graduate. Sound and object design are two notions that industrial designers rarely have the opportunity to associate. However, most common objects potentially produce sounds. All you have to do is pull a chair, open and close a drawer or press a switch to generate sound. Common factors: movement, friction and interaction, which allow basic physics processes to create tones. In this perspective, the students offered a fresh and original look at an ordinary object, often invisible, but never discreet: the doorbell. Whether mechanical or electrical, the bells they have invented reveal a unique, sometimes even thundering, sound experience. Here, the classic carillon gives way to a curious metallophone powered by a perforated card reminiscent of traditional mechanical music boxes. The old door knocker is exchanged for a vibrating dong! The familiar buzzer is replaced by an efficient drum roll. The usual bell replaces a strange device that makes a great sound. Finally, the usual ding-dong is swapped for a resounding mhhhhh ! dear to the bovine race, to name but a few of the devices presented. Come in and ring the bell! www.ecal-ringmybell.ch
