Portrait

In the different boxes on my website you will find my personal projects or those in which I have participated. Participation or rather collaboration is a word that is precious to me. Throughout my academic and professional career, I have been able to experiment many collaborations that have led me to great results, artistic, technical and human. In this multidisciplinary spirit, it is difficult for me today to call myself a product designer. I work as much in scenography, research, exhibition design as in product design or new technologies. The new technologies are a strong point of my work. I am very curious about the world of interaction, both physical and virtual.

Hi!

Salut!

Extraordinaire!

For exactly twenty years, the Gaudard house has been home to the mudac on the Cathedral square. To bring to a close this period in which it has played the role of museum to perfection, the mudac pays homage to it by offering to house, for three months, a rich selection of extra-ordinary and (almost) functional objects and creations. My little popsicle stick and three thundering Milanese bells are in the game! /Lison Christe

Première Pierre

Project carried out within the framework of the competition for the new street furniture and lighting of the Pace Pestalozzi in Yverdon. The Pestalozzi square is characterized by the presence of very mineral elements such as the Hauterive stone of which its buildings are composed or the paving stones on which passers-by walk.

This proposal is therefore mainly based on the natural elegance of concrete. Shotcrete masts are discreetly part of this mineral universe. Simply blackened by surface oxidation, the connecting parts between the mat and the luminaires take on the same colour as the modules. The delicacy of the concrete, both visual and tactile, brings a certain softness to the luminaire. Moreover, concrete is a recognized and specific know-how in Switzerland. The bench has been designed from a section of a pillar also made of concrete. The prefabricated and raw elements thus drown in the decor of another time to add all the desired comfort to the visitor. /Lison Christe

Colonette

Unique piece specially made for the exhibition « Esquimaux » at the Galerie Palais in Neuchâtel. The stick of ice evokes more than anything else, the holidays. Mine is that of the south, of the Mediterranean, its ruins and warm sand. But also that summer that we have to spend at home to observe the bottom of the aquarium and its innumerable miniature pastiches such as my ice-cream stick « Colonette ». /Lison Christe

Ring my bell

Ring my bell is an offbeat collection of interactive bells developed by 1st year students in the Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design, under the joint direction of Mathieu Rivier and Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard and in collaboration with EPFL+ECAL Lab, Lison Christe and Mathieu Lang.

Sound and object design are two notions that industrial designers rarely have the opportunity to combine. Nevertheless, most everyday objects potentially produce sounds. Just pull up a chair, open or close a drawer or even flip a switch and you will create sound. What do all these actions have in common? Movement, friction and interaction which draw on the basic laws of physics to create tones. With this in mind, the students have offered a fresh and original take on an everyday object, one that is unremarkable yet never silent—the doorbell. /ECAL /Lison Christe /Mathieu Rivier /Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard /Mathieu Lang /Cédric Duchêne /EPFL+ECAL Lab

Riponne-Tunnel

As part of the development of the Riponne and Tunnel squares, the city of Lausanne is launching a participatory project in the form of workshops to encourage discussion and interaction between the inhabitants. Invited by Constructlab, which will build an ephemeral village square around an oven and an inflatable hut, I organize activities around jungle bread. Big wheels made by me will be at your disposal to roll and toast your own bread above the oven. /Constructlab /Lison Christe

Matrioshka

These little tea bowls fit into each other like Russian dolls. They are made from the molding of a 3D print which gives them a striated texture. This work is one of the intermediate results of a research on the use of 3D printing and ceramics. /Lison Christe

Stateslate

Whether we like it or not, we often communicate with colleagues or friends by text message, social media or mail. It’s increasingly rare to have face-to-face conversations. What’s more,objects now have so many functions that they communicate less and less with those around us. A newspaper or book may signify a specific interest or position of the person reading it, for example. It’s become quite hard for an onlooker to interpret the intentions of someone using a multifunctional device. For exemple: If you’re writing a letter, others can see exactly what you’re doing. If you’re writing a mail on your smartphone, they don’t know whether you’re composing a message or chatting to a friend on social media.

A 3D system translates the user’s state of mind into a colour. The system’s various axes range from active red to passive cyan, from accessible blue to unavailable yellow, and from stable green to creative purple. Different apps might trigger different states – mail could automatically trigger a yellow or inaccessible state – and different behaviours: fast app switching would move the user’s state on the cyan-red axis, time spent in an app would move the state into a green-purple dimension, and the type of app would change the state along the blueyellow axis. /OOOF

Point and Shoot

Point and Shoot is an exhibition realized for Bachelors industrial design and media & interaction design students from ECAL presented in the Mudac exhibition « Ligne de mire » in Lausanne. Students created two concepts during workshop with Map Project Office from London. The first project captures pictures when subjects are striking one of these poses : angry, sad or happy. The second is a talking camera. Instead of creating an image she will dictate it. /ECAL /Lison Christe /Students: Pierre Alain-Longval, Iskander Guetta, Manfred-Gordon Baud, Hanieh Rashid, Amélie Demay, Pierry Jaquillard.

Where there are Cameras there are people

Where there are cameras, there are people is a interactive installation, autonomously interacting, photographing and collecting the portraits of the visitors. In three sections of the dispositive, the work traces the topics of dematerialisation, transmission and materialisation of images. While the interaction between the visitor and the three robots (abstractly resembling three paradise birds on roosts) first is playful, the true nature of the interaction gets revealed to the visitors along the installation. The three collectors are each connected to a series of networking cables, flowing in loose waves to the final point. In the section of materialisation, the visitor is confronted with a thermal printer continuously printing the collected portraits of the visitors, revealing the true character of the installation. The work thematizes the hyperobject of the connected camera being the materialisation of the vast system of cameras, manual and automatic postprocessing algorithms and machine vision enabled cameras. /OOOF

Extrusion

A series of three hundred coffee cups made in ceramic extrusion. The form derives directly from the processused. Once the shape has been extruded, all that remains is to cut it to the desired size, cast a bottom and enamel it. /Lison Christe

Helio

Helio is a ceiling light for office spaces, conference rooms, open spaces and other workspaces. Designed for the startup Insolight, this lamp makes the light move according to the user’s wishes, as if it is guided by an invisible hand. As the light is directed trough shifting the light sources behind the array of lenses, the lamp has no moving parts visible from the outside. The direction of the light is controlled via bluetooth with an app and can both move according to an automatic mode mimicking the trajectory of the sun throughout a working day as well as according to a manual mode allowing the user to direct the light projected to a specific area. /Lison Christe/Insolight

Screen

Screen is a scenography for the play «L’abattage rituel de Gorge Mastromas» at the Vidy theater in Lausanne for the acting school «les Tintureries». The screens are associated with the economic and urban atmosphere to recrate the oppressing feeling that Gorge Mastromas creates in his life. The screens are made of perforated paper attached to a frame. By placing stage lights behind it create an effect similar to that of a pixel. Stacked on top of one another they appear as a wall of television. Covered in black shiny vynil the stage reflects the light of the screens. The actors and objects placed between the light and the screen transform the set. The physical interaction between the set and the actors allows the scenography to take a more important role in the play. /ECAL/Lison Christe/Anna-Sophie Studer

« Laisse tomber la chaise » That’s what the workshop with Pierre Charpin was called. Rethink the chair, archetype of industrial design, from another angle. The track I have chosen is that of the free newspaper, full of all kinds of advertising that is used in all situations to avoid getting dirty. Rather than a full page advertisement, why not offer a mythical seat? /ECAL/Lison Christe
