Alternative Measuring Tools

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Alternative Measuring Tools

Workshop with Manuel Krebs (NORM), Elie Fazel

Measuring, it seems, is one of the dominant concerns of modern society. We measure ourselves, our weight, our height, our temperature, from head to toe, from collar size to shoe size. We measure what is around us, from tiny to incredibly large. We measure time (from seconds to lifetimes), we measure the familiar (length, weight, volume) and the unusual (sound, radiation, voltage), we have measurement systems for everyday life and for experts. For this workshop, the students of the Bachelor Industrial Design have developed alternative measuring devices.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Toc Toc Toc!

Studio project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Victor Jacquard

For this project, the 1st year students were asked to design a handle or door knob. They had to focus mainly on the part on which the hand rests when closing, opening, pulling or pushing a door. They were free to choose the type of handle, as long as it was compatible with an existing mechanism. The context of the object as well as its use and ergonomics were aspects that were at the heart of their project.
