In Wool We Trust

Studio project with Camille Blin, Ronan Bouroullec

With the kind support of The Woolmark Company and Mover Sportswear. Workshop led by Ronan Bouroullec and Camille Blin, assisted by Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard. Result of a one week workshop with the students of the Master in Product design, these installations are celebrating the numerous qualities of Merino wool in an unconventional way. Wool is a material that is part of our everyday lives. It has a particular meaning to everybody without having any specific shape or colour. Our goal during this workshop week was to give shape to those references we all have towards this product. It started without any preconceived idea on what the end result would look like. By experimenting and playing around with the different states of this material, the students designed some unexpected installations. Each one of them acts like a little story, using movement as a way to express itself. Information The Woolmark Company Information Mover Images: ECAL/Axel Crettenand

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Audemars Piguet 2011

Collaboration with Ronan Bouroullec

The workshop in collaboration with the watch was carried out over an entire year by students in the University of Art and Design Lausanne (ECAL) under the supervision of French designer Ronan Bourroullec. Students were asked to give free rein to their imaginations and shake up a bit the brand’s DNA, designing pieces that would be inspired by the Millenary collection, the Royal Oak and the Royal Oak Offshore. They naturally came up with bold ideas that were nonetheless perfectly respectful of the codes that govern the world of Audemars Piguet.

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Audemars Piguet 2010

Collaboration with Ronan Bouroullec

For this new collaboration with the prestigious Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet, the students had the opportunity to create a collection of leather bags, inspired by the brand's own codes and timelessness. Led by French designer Ronan Bouroullec, the challenge was to combine aesthetics and functionality. Among the projects developed and prototyped were a briefcase that folds into an elegant clutch and a bag inspired by the world of sailing and the iconic watch Royal Oak.
