Studio project with Adrien Rovero, Martin Haldimann
On the occasion of the 2012 Images Festival, ECAL had proposed to the students from the 3rd year Bachelor Industrial Design to compose a reception zone for the EX-EPA building. Staging systems are known for its quality of usage and innovation. The students therefore decided to use staging systems to make a link to future renovations of the building that would start by the end the Images Festival so the preparations would already be done. For the project «Neil», the students worked on a scenography for the Grand Café Les Mouettes, which was a side event of the Images Festival, organised by the collective RATS, located in Vevey. It involves a series of furniture, composed of two materials: plane pine wood boards and ALUCOBOND panels. The precise manufacturing of the wooden pieces eases the joints of the white surfaces and forms the character of the furniture.
