objets en eternit

ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne

Nicolas Le Moigne

Developed as a master’s degree project at ECAL (University of art and design), «objets en eternit» was realised in close partnership with the Eternit company. Intended for outdoor use, these small-scale furnishings and objects – a stool, a side table and flower pots – make consistent use of the structural and design properties of the material. A major emphasis of the project was on the development of suitable forms that would enable the objects to be serially produced. Numerous experiments with different materials and techniques finally resulted in the creation of the first prototypes.
