3Novices:ÉCAL students anticipate the future of familiar objects for Milan exhibition

Milan 2016: interaction design students at Swiss university ÉCAL have used connected technologies and virtual reality to imagine possible future versions of everyday objects such as a toaster, a broom and a book (+ movie).

For the When Objects Dream exhibition, teachers at ÉCAL (École Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne) asked students to rethink the way we see the objects around us.

“At the fair here in Milan we speak a lot about furniture and objects in the general sense,” ÉCAL director Alexis Georgacopoulos told Dezeen. “We felt it would be good, not just to speak about the object itself, but what surrounds that – be that physical or virtual.”

The students responded by imagining a world where the objects have their own dreams and personalities.

Using virtual reality (VR) headsets, some students asked visitors to literally look inside the objects. Others used activity sensors so the objects “make statements about their own existence” when visitors interact with them.



“In a playful manner, they lead us to rethink some of our distrust in the face of change and as regards, their future,” said the students.

Each object is painted black with a coloured switch, handle or other part that indicates how the visitor should interact with it.

A coloured VR headset inserted into the end of a broom by Erike Marthins and Hélène Portier allows visitors to sweep away giant coloured blocks in a dark, virtual world.

Looking into another headset embedded in the pages of Piero Alberti and Elise Migraine’s Look Book immerses visitors in a world of floating text.

“The book is one of the most archetypal objects in the show and what you can achieve through it, is it puts you in another world, with texts and letters and words falling around you,” said Georgacopoulos.

By holding the shade of Aloïs Geiser and Andrea Ramirez Aburto’s lamp and rocking it side to side, visitors can roll a ball across a virtual floor.

Bottles by Charlotte Broccard and Stella Speziali reveal a fast-flowing digital liquid inside, while a teapot by Salomé Chatriot pours a “liquid sound” into visitors’ ears.

Looking up through a headset in the bottom of an empty vase reveals a world of unknown vegetation in Melanie Courtinat’s Bloom, while when peering into Thomas Faucheux and Arthur Moscatelli’s table, one perceives a sharp drop.

For all the other installations in the show, the object is connected to a screen nearby, which alters when visitors interact with the item.

André Andrade and Guilio Barresi’s toaster becomes a launch pad for all kind of objects that jump out on the screen above.

“There are endless boundaries with the toaster, you could even have elephants jumping out of it,” said Georgacopoulos.

A metronome controls the pace of a table-tennis match playing on the screen above in Luca Kaper and Callum Ross’ installation, so visitors can turn the match from leisurely to nail-biting.

Attendees can also pop an on-screen balloon by using Pierre Allain-Longval and Mathilde Colson’s bicycle pump, or melt objects by using Adrien Kaeser and Corentin Vignet’s hairdryer.

Confident visitors can even step onto David Nguyen and Fabiola Soavelo’s scale and watch their weight cause clothes to twist around a virtual rack.

  1. What are the core or basic lessons taught Writing classes? One of the first things I learned about was Freytags Pyramid. I was told that isn’t an across the board learning device. So what is? I’m really curious. In poetry I was taught, ‘if it means too many things to too many people it misses it’s mark’. I have since learned that good writing tends to bring out different reactions in different people and different interpretations. How can learning about creative writing (creativity is so individualized) be standardized?.

  4. This could mean a pair of beautiful boots or booties, a traditional pump, or your favorite
    strapy sandals. Depending on the best feature in your body,

    As always, the bridesmaids feel profoundly grateful that
    you have chosen dresses they either already own or
