An invitation from Eyes on Talents brought the exhibition “ECAL Graphic Design” to Paris during the D’Days festival from 31 May to 5 June. Hosted by Boon, the exhibition featured the best recent projects from the ECAL (University of Art and Design Lausanne), which has long established itself as a world-class institution for graphic design education, among other disciplines. From books and catalogues to typography and digital media, the works on view — projects from the last five years — represent the depth and breadth of the Swiss school’s pedagogy.

The initiative dates back to March of this year, with the publication of “ECAL Graphic Design” and concurrent exhibition at ECAL and Galerie l’elac. As an anthology of student work from the Graphic Design Bachelors and Art Direction Masters programs, the book takes an unconventional format: Gavillet & Rust studio have organized the projects not by category or chronology but by color. Adrien Rovero, who is featured in Silver Edition TL Mag 25, followed suit with his “chromalogical” exhibition design.

In this extensive conversation between Christian Larsen and photographer Vincent Fournier, we learn about the aesthetics and interests behind ‘Brasília, A Time Capsule’, a series which investigates the architecture, landscape, and people of Brasília (Brazil).

Collaborator of our sister gallery Spazio Nobile, Matthias Kohn, developed a project about home, nature, and hospitality. In essence, the concept is based on the idea of placing furniture, most often used in private interior settings, thus adapted for this type of use, and suggesting comfort, in exterior settings, where the impact of the piece on the respective surroundings is allowed to develop fully.
