I participated in a workshop week "Innovation by Design Challenge" focused on design thinking and market research. The goal was to collaborate between start-ups and designers and to see what the designers can bring to them, especially by working at the beginning of their project.
The experience was very rewarding and we were lucky to win the Jury Prize with the development of our new aquaponics concept.
About the event : Innovation by Design Challenge
I have collaborated with the interaction design Studio Fragmentin on one of their project : I Hat an Idea that will be exhibited during the festival "Future of Story Telling" in New York.
I Hat an Idea consists of 6 hats, linked to Twitter, and 6 hashtags: #eat, #live, #work, #travel, #sleep, #talk. Each hashtag can activate one hat, which prints Twitter discussions around the topic. Also, when someone wears the hat, it prints generated questions related to the topic.
I participated to an hackathon for La Vaudoise Assurance with 6 interdisciplinary groups formed by engineers, designers and insurance employees. After two days of intense work, we presented our solution and we received the public prize of La Vaudoise.
My headset Vibso is part of the new exhibition at the Design Museum in Holon, Israel.
The exhibition "Sound and Matter in Design" is containing objects designed from the 1960s to the present.
"Sound and Matter in Design explores the ways in which spaces, environments, and everyday experiences are shaped by sound. As this exhibition demonstrates, sound is not merely a backdrop to the unfolding of our daily routines; rather, it is a central element that is shaped by culture and shapes it in turn."
Exhibition curated by Elisabetta Pisu, Anat Safran, Lila Chitayat and Yael Taragan

BG Sustainable Development Prize is awarded to Renaud Defrancesco, a student at the ECAL
The BG Sustainable Development Prize is awarded each year at several higher education institutions in recognition of outstanding thesis projects based on their economic, ecological and social merits.
The 2014 prize at the Lausanne Cantonal School of Art was awarded to Renaud Defrancesco for his work on LED technology. Due to its durability, reliability and low heat output, LED technology has become the gold standard for lighting. Mr. Defrancesco's thesis focuses on light bulbs used as lamps in their own right, since LED lights do not need special bulbs, unlike other type of lighting. Mr. Defrancesco redesigned the contours of the protective glass into the shape of lamps and lampshades. His work encourages awareness of the sustainability of objects and drives thinking about consumption and sustainable development.
The jury consisted of Alexis Georgacopoulos (ECAL’s director), Elric Petit (responsible for the Bachelor’s degree programme in Industrial Design), Vincent Jacquier (head of the Visual Communications department) and Laurent Vulliet (BG Group’s CEO).
