GalleryThe ECAL / University of Art and Design Lausanne has long been recognised as a world reference in terms of graphic design. Be it designing books, catalogues, magazines or posters, typography or digital projects, ECAL students are able to embrace all facets of the discipline. This success is largely based on a unique framework of workshops allowing students to learn directly from leading Swiss or international graphic designers such as Ludovic Balland, Bibliothèque, Mirko Borsche, Veronica Ditting and NORM. The exhibition and accompanying book »ECAL Graphic Design« retrace five years of projects that emerged mainly from within the Bachelor Graphic Design and Master Art Direction courses.

SchaudepotDieter Rams’s designs for Braun are legendary, while his ideas about design are more topical than ever today. Rams’s best-known furniture design is his shelf 606, but also his seating furniture shows the diversity of his design activity. The Schaudepot exhibition shows Rams’s furniture and electrical appliances from the Vitra Design Museum collection, supplemented by an interview in which Rams explains his designs and his design philosophy. It clearly shows how deeply Rams’s designs are rooted in a consistent worldview that looks for simplicity, honesty and reduction. Their timelessness makes them textbook examples of sustainable design, continuing to influence designers even today.

MuseumScience fiction becomes reality: robotics has been finding its way into our lives for a number of years now. Examples range from transport drones and intelligent sensors to the debate around Industry 4.0. In the exhibition »Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine«, the Vitra Design Museum will thoroughly examine the current robotics boom for the first time. The exhibition will present a variety of exhibits, including examples of robots from homes, industry or medicine, but also media installations, computer games and examples from film and literature. It will demonstrate how robotics is changing our lives today – and how design is changing robotics. At the same time, it broadens our view of the ethical and political issues associated with robotics today. The show features more than 150 exhibits including works by Bruce Sterling, Douglas Coupland, Joris Laarman, Carlo Ratti, Dunne & Raby, and Philip Beesley.Opening: 10.02.2017, 6 pm
The exhibition is realised in cooperation with MAK Vienna and Design museum Gent.
MuseumThis exhibition will examine a crucial trend in contemporary housing that has recently emerged internationally: dwelling space is created by carving out new urban commons and sharing ideas. The exhibition will contextualize this new phenomenon by introducing its historical hinterland, from utopian housing developments of the 19th century to the protest movements against housing shortage and real estate speculation in the 1980s.

Charles (1907-1978) and Ray Eames (1912-1988) are among the most important designers of the 20th century. They designed innovative furniture and other industrial products, films, books, exhibitions, multi-media installations, interiors and much more. In autumn 2017, the Vitra Design Museum will present a major retrospective on the Eames’ work. The exhibition “The World of Charles & Ray Eames” will highlight the work of the legendary couple in all its different fields. Parallel to this retrospective, the museum will present further exhibitions and events that will extend the view on the work of Charles & Ray Eames and give insight into the Eames’ object estate which is kept in the Vitra Design Museum since 1988. The result will be the largest exploration of the Eames’s work that has ever been shown in a museum, coinciding with Charles Eames’ 110th birthday.
