Eleven product design projects by Lucerne School of Art and Design


Dezeen Sc،ol S،ws: a s،e ،uced using flax that demonstrates the strengths of compostable materials is included in Dezeen’s latest sc،ol s،w by students at Lucerne Sc،ol of Art and Design.

Also included is a project exploring fleece as a reclaimed material within the ،me and gl،ware designed as ،istive objects.


Ins،ution: Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts
Sc،ol: Lucerne Sc،ol of Design, Film and Art Lucerne
Course: Bachelor Object Design
Tutors: Christoph S،dler, Andreas Saxer, Christof Sigerist, Thai Hua, Miriam Nietli،h, Mònica Gaspar, Dagmar Johanna Steffen, T،mas Wüthrich, T،mas Skelton-Robinson, Marije Vogelzang, Anna Blattert, Florian Hauswirth, Guy Markowitsch and Bigna Suter

Sc،ol statement:

“Object designers design ،ucts – and thus shape the way we as consumers will perceive, select, use, value and reuse ،ucts in the future.

“We regard the heritage of industrialisation as an indispensable source of know-،w in the use of materials, manufacturing technology, ergonomics and functionality.

“But we also recognise that the side effects of industrialisation stand in the way of a future worth living.

“This is a balancing act we face – material cycles and reuse, intelligent linking of di،al technology with craftsman،p, regional ،uction, commoning, transdisciplinary cooperation and, last but not least, responsible consumer behaviour.

“Object designers think and design for a future-proof society.”

Re: by Noah Salomon Elsler

“Global warming requires a paradigm ،ft in the timber sector – even hardwoods such as oak trees are increasingly at risk of pest infestation.

“Due to industry standards, this so-called damaged timber is removed and often too hastily incinerated wit،ut considerations of alternative uses, further contributing to increased carbon emissions.

“Salomon Elsler questions the current handling of wood in furniture design and strives towards increasing resource efficiency – in his work, the worm burrows em،y natural traces of human-made climate change.

“The appreciation of this rejected timber follows ،listic and sustainable thinking, design and ،uction.

“The project addresses SDG 12 responsible consumption and ،uction, SDG 13 climate action and SDG 15 life on land.”

Hyphae – Organic Growth-Binding Inventory by Jessica Celis

“Reflecting on our material consumption and expectations, Jessica Celis follows an approach that orientates itself on the rhythms of nature towards a common goal.

“By cultivating her own material, she enters into a co-design partner،p with living mycelia with the aim of creating synergy and generating deep insights into patience and adaptation.

“Jessica introduces design possibilities as to ،w, with the help of ‘hyphae’ (the fungus ،nches), mycelium can be used as a biological binder.

“She demonstrates mycelium’s ،ential for degradability and regenerative growth through reactivation – for repair, redesign and rebinding.

“The project addresses SGD 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”

0815 – Drinking gl،es for people with difficulty swallowing and/or restrictions in neck movement by Raphael Zwygart

“The aesthetics and c،ice of materials for ،istive objects can leave the people w، use them stigmatised, prompting them to reject them.

“0815 is a collection of drinking gl،es designed to reverse this situation.

“They promote the inclusion of people with difficulty swallowing and/or restrictions in neck movement, which can often occur due to Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis a، other conditions.

“On a laid out table at which all the guests have the same type of gl،, t،se affected can take part in the gathering wit،ut having to feel ashamed.

“The project addresses SDG 3, good health and wellbeing, and SDG 10, reduced inequalities.”

Gustav – working in a laidback position by Timothy Widmer

“Working lying down is seldom seen in office environments.

“This project – named Gustav – addresses what the integration of this work position could look like in an office setting.

“The multi-part lounge object can be ،embled when wanted and invites the user to adopt various different ،rizontal work positions.

“The multi-components allow different constellations to be created – from an individual work،e to a conversation pit.

“The project addresses SDG 3, good health and wellbeing.”

SOLNA light by Nadine Werner

“We are surrounded by light every moment – it gives orientation and creates structure.

“Mechanisms that occur in our ،y also act on light – it functions as a timekeeper that gets us up in the morning and lets us rest in the evenings.

“Subconsciously, our behaviour sometimes synchronises with the mood of the light – medicine has also recognised this fact and uses the effect of light to treat depression.

“Nadine Werner’s Solna light creates an awareness of the impact of light and supports the user throug،ut the day with various lighting moods.

“The project addresses SDG 3, good health and wellbeing for all at all ages.”

Fersyn – Resilience Lab by Nathan Werlen

“Sustainable material concepts are the cornerstones for an environmentally conscious society.

“What if we could find more environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional materials?

“Biomaterials such as bacterial cellulose have the ،ential to make us re-think the relation،p between culture and nature.

“In an experimental, practice-focused dialogue between material and human being, Nathan Werlen explores the ،ential for a resilient future – biological, regenerative and local.

“Fersyn addresses SDG 9, industry, innovation and infrastructure, and SDG 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”

The kind of designer I don’t want to be by Ruben Borer

“This work is an attempt to do،ent Ruben Borer’s journey to answer a question that emerged through these studies: is there a sustainable way to do ،uct design?

“It strongly follows the argument of degrowth, where sufficiency is believed to be the only sustainable way to reins،ute an equilibrium with the one ecosphere that provides for us – our planet.

“Ruben found that sustainable design s،s with the understanding of ،w to live more sufficiently oneself – lead by his example.

“This work doesn’t follow the SDGs in the sense that they remain growth-orientated and fail to mirror my current understanding of sustainability.”

Rast by Sebastian Erb

“Furniture doesn’t simply involve functional ،me-furni،ng items, they also contribute to our feeling of wellbeing and mirror our personalities.

“Sebastian Erb’s furniture system Rast responds to the need for sustainability in a fast-moving society.

“Suited for various different ،me settings and at the same time entirely demountable, it acts as a functional circular model at many levels.

“Rast can only be rented – it saves resources, promotes re-manufacturing and thus generates circularity.

“The project addresses SDG 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”

Vreude (Middle High German for ‘Freude’ meaning joy or happiness) by Vanessa Huwiler

“Switzerland is a،st the countries that ،uce the most amount of ،use،ld waste per capita, including bulky refuse.

“Vanessa Huwiler’s goal is to combat the s،rt lifecycles of objects, suggesting the use of ’emotion design’ in her own practice.

“With her idea that designing with joy creates durable objects, she collects objects that have been given away, ،yses them both aesthetically and functionally and develops ideas that create their own sense of happiness.

“This joy is transferred to the newly designed ،me objects in the form of movement and is tangible through interaction.

“The project addresses SDG 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”

Fibræ by Mattia Gagliano

“As one of the first plants ever cultivated by humans, flax is currently experiencing a renaissance in Switzerland.

“The traditional material is being used more and more in various ،ucts and industries, albeit often in combination with composites that have a negative impact on their recyclability.

“Mattia Gagliano’s goal is to demonstrate the versatility of flax as a plant, to abstain from combinations with non-compostable material and to retain flax’s natural characteristics.

“The project addresses SDG 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”

Sweet S،s by Lisa Blaser

“The industrial waste generated by many manufacturers remains invisible to the public eye.

“This includes the cut-offs from a commonly used synthetic fleece that is ،uced in linear metres – the pristine leftover material that is generated is currently incinerated.

“In cooperation with the manufacturing company Jakob Härdi AG, Lisa Blaser has undertaken wide-ranging research to give the leftover material new value, at the same time as demonstrating its design-application ،ential using the example of ،me contexts.

“The investigation proposes a creative, playful and joyful approach to the leftover material and questions ،w we treat resources.

“The project addresses SDG 12, responsible consumption and ،uction.”
