Luxury Design by Écal in Shanghai

The ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne presents in Shanghai new projects by the first-year students in the Master of Advanced Studies in Luxury & Design (MAS- Luxury) launched in autumn 2008 and supervised by Augustin Scott de Martinville. Under the guidance of world- renowned designers such as Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, Ronan Bouroullec, BIG-GAME and Alexis Georgacopoulos, students from all around the world (Swiss, American, Slovak, Mexican, French…) were able to produce objects in close collaboration with the main sponsors (Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Nespresso) and partners (Christofle, Tag Aviation, Wenger) of this programme.

The results are outstanding, including modular jewels for Audemars Piguet, variation on the famous Big-Bang watch for Hublot, cups and other utensils for Nespresso, various objects for Christofle, as well as corporate gifts for Tag Aviation. This is also the opportunity to (re)discover some projects carried out within the Industrial Design Department a few years ago with Bernardaud, Christofle, Nidecker and Swarovski, as well as the Emile Hermès Prize 2008.

These events could be realized within the frame of the new agreement between the Canton de Vaud and swissnex Singapore and thanks, among others, to the generous contribution of the private bank Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch, allowing the exhibition to move on to swissnex Shanghai In January 2010.

The exhibition is open to the public 2 February – 12 February 2010
800 Show Creative Center, West Hall
1st Floor, 9th Building, 800 Changde Road, Shanghai
