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.

This exercise aimed to sharpen the eyes of students to the objects around them and take more precisely aware of the formal quality of these. In the manner of a classic design course, they have to reproduce 3D objects 1: 1 as faithfully and intelligently as possible through models. Photos ECAL/Sébastien Cluzel
