New Super-Fast 3D Printing Method: Prints in Seconds, High-Res, No Layers, Soft or Hard Materials

Researchers at Switzerland's EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) have invented a new 3D printing method similar to stereolithography, but with far faster results.The similarity between the two systems is that both use photosensitive resins cured by lasers. Where they differ is that EPFL's system, which is tomography-inspired, doesn't build layer-by-layer on a vertically-moving platform, but instead comprehensively blasts their beams into a spinning container holding the resin. This e...

Sumo wrestles sustainability into an all-natural, biodegradable diaper

Sustainable living is an ongoing pursuit that requires evaluating each purchase and every product we use. But some daily tasks just don’t have suitable solutions. The spotlight on disposable diapers is one example, and the only real option so far has been cloth diapers. Even though cloth diapers do keep the plastic variety from sitting in a landfill for hundreds of years, the plastic ribbing and diaper inserts typically keep cloth diapers from being recyclable. As part of her master’s thesis, Lu...

ZOOM M&O PARIS – ECAL MADE Projet étudiant : Interview de Hugo Paternostre et de son projet la grappe

En cette édition de Janvier 2019, MAISON & OBJET PARIS a permis aux étudiants en première année de Master Design de produit de l’ECAL (École Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne) de se confronter aux enjeux du métier de designer, de l’idée jusqu’à la fabrication et la vente. Ces objets «  ECAL made », objets du quotidien réalisés en Suisse avec l’aide, pour la plupart, d’artisans locaux, en sont l’heureux résultat. Un « Swiss made » qui a le mérite d’être des plus surprenant. Parmi ces projets exposés, ...

The world's first vertical forest for low-income housing is coming to the Netherlands

Stefano Boeri has designed and built vertical forests across the globe, but his latest project, slated for Eindhoven in The Netherlands, will be unlike anything that has been done before. That’s because, for the first time ever, the forest tower has been funded by a social housing project, and the tower will provide low-income housing. The Trudo Vertical Forest looks to be an example of how good architecture can tackle both climate change and urban housing issues. Stefano Boeri has constructed...

A 16th-Century Multi-Tool, an Opium Pipe Holder and Other Fascinating Swiss Auction Finds

Here's a great example of a guy who turned his hobby into a business, and how not having enough money forced a creative decision that made the business take off. In 1958, Pierre Koller was a Swiss 34-year-old that had grown up in Lausanne and Zurich. Fond of collecting horse carvings and old furniture, he opened an antique shop in Zurich to sell some of it off.The following year a German clock collector offered to sell his timepiece collection to Koller—for 100,000 Swiss Francs. That was way mor...

This robotic "eel" hunts down the source of water pollution

Lake Geneva’s latest resident—all four feet of it—is neither man nor beast. Dubbed the Envirobot, the critter is a biomimetic robot designed by Swiss researchers to pinpoint the source of pollution in tainted waters. Bereft of fins or propellers, Envirobot slithers through water like an eel, leaving mud and aquatic life undisturbed. Just as stealthily, it uses sensors to gather data from various locations, which it transmits to a remote computer in near-instantaneous fashion. Even for an auto...

Hollands first Vertical Forest to rise with 10,000 air-purifying plants

Hot on the heels of the world’s first Forest City in China, Stefano Boeri Architetti has announced their winning bid for the first Vertical Forest in the Netherlands. Set to rise in Utrecht, the Hawthorn Tower will, like its Milanese predecessor, be blanketed in greenery and is expected to absorb over 5.4 tons of carbon dioxide. The equivalent of one hectare of woods will be installed on the tower to create a real urban ecosystem with over 30 different vegetal species. Slated to begin constru...

Scientists unveil first printable, stable perovskite solar cell good for 10K hours

The mineral perovskite has been touted as the next big thing for renewable energy, potentially giving solar cells a 31 percent maximum efficiency – but water-soluble and perovskite solar cells typically don’t last long in the real world. 11 scientists at institutions in Switzerland and Italy may have finally achieved what researchers have been working towards since around 2009: a stable perovskite solar cell. Their solar cells stayed stable in real world conditions for longer than a year. Pero...

New Swiss solar panel doubles the efficiency of residential systems

As if to prove the sheer speed at which solar panel technology is evolving, a new startup called Insolight claims to have beaten the efficiency record set just over a week ago by a joint team from MIT and Masdar Institute. The new device was invented by a team while working in the innovation incubator at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), and it reportedly has a solar energy conversion rate of 36.4 percent - one percent more than the Masdar/MIT innovation. That effici...

This timber installation challenges students to think about new ways to design homes

The structure was built during a 5-day workshop, involving over 200 students who worked under the guidance of 12 studio directors and the wood engineer Rémy Meylan. Meant to unfold as a series of successive spaces, the structure aims to "invoke questions, contains possibilities, and is open for interpretation. The project was a collaboration meant to challenge the designers to think outside of the architecture box, and helped the students explore how design could take place not from the top do...

Clip-Air to test modular capsule-based aircraft with a small-scale drone

Back in 2013, we reported on a crazy airplane that could carry passengers and cargo in modular, detachable capsules. The Clip-Air plane was conceived by Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, and engineers have spent several years developing the design - now the company is gearing up to build a small-scale Clip-Air prototype drone as a test vehicle. The two-part Clip-Air craft is composed of the flying component (the airframe, cockpit, and engines) and the capsules, which are...

Interview : Constance Guisset

Constance Guisset – Lampe Vertigo pour Petite Friture Partons à la rencontre de Constance Guisset, designer française connue et reconnue… 1 – Pouvez-vous vous présenter en quelques mots ? Enfant, je rêvais d’un métier à la fois manuel et intellectuel, chirurgien par exemple. Je faisais déjà du bricolage mais je ne m’imaginais pas encore designer. J’ai étais prise dans le flot des études, d’abord commencé dans une école de commerce, avant de me dire que je préférais travailler dans la culture. J...
