DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Chopard

Collaboration by Miguel Gonzalez Arjona, Savvas Lazaridis, Maximilian Maertens, Mauro Mota Martinho, Enrico Pietra, Donghoon Sohn, Yihan Zhang

For the first collaboration with Chopard, students of the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship of ECAL have designed a collection of leather handbags and pouches under the direction of Swiss designer Xavier Perrenoud.  Students were asked to create projects directly inspired by three iconic collections:  Ice Cube ,  Happy Diamonds  and  Imperiale . The visit of the manufacture and the presentation of the different ranges of accessories allowed the students to understand the stakes and the codes of this prestigious House based in Switzerland.

Festival Images

Studio project with Adrien Rovero, Marceau Avogadro

Pour la troisième fois consécutive, l’ECAL s’associe au Festival Images de Vevey, manifestation gratuite centrée autour de l’image contemporaine. La spécificité du Festival Images est de présenter de la photographie monumentale en plein air, tout en présentant des projets autours de l’image dans un sens plus large en intérieur. Pour l’édition 2016, et suite au succès de l’installation RAFT de 2014,  les étudiants de 3e année Bachelor Design Industriel ont créé des dispositifs «aquatiques» investissant les berges de Vevey le temps du Festival Images.
