ECAL, Appartement 50

last year, 12 studients from ECAL/University of art and design in Lausanne were invited to work on a collection of objects from the everyday needs in la Cité Radieuse.
after a 3-day workshop in la Cité Radieuse experiencing life in the building, they created objects for the Apartment 50, following the climate of the apartment and the flexibility of interior space.
every object has two uses, supporting the idea of flexibily.
the exhibitions runs until July 19th.
