Workshop, ECAL 2021

in MASTER OF ADVANCED STUDIES DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Teacher(s): Fiona Krüger


Collaboration ECAL x FEMA

Within the framework of the partnership between ECAL/University of Art & Design Lausanne and the FEMA (Formation en Mécanique d'Art), the students of the Master in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship had the opportunity to visit the manufactures and meet the artisans based in the town of Sainte-Croix. This region of the Franco-Swiss Jura arc gathers a great deal of know-how in watchmaking and art mechanics and is now part of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage.

These visits and encounters should enable the students of the ECAL program to create simple and fun mechanical parts that will illustrate the various skills specific to the region, such as automatons, music boxes or watchmaking.
