Spanning Alpine peaks and linguistic borders, Paris-based platform Eyes on Talent ventures to top Italian and Swiss schools to spotlight the recent graduates who are quickly reshaping the design industry. Between the hallowed halls of the Basel Academy of Art and Design (FHNW), the École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD), Polimoda in Florence, Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Milan and Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (IUAV) in Venice, we find new fashion, graphic arts, photography, and product design concepts – some of which are in process and others of which are ready for market. Along the way, rich, process-based narratives meet sustainable solutions.
