Arno Mathies on luxury and industrial design

Arno Mathies talks about luxury, industrial design and the influences in his own work.

In a Pecha Kucha-style presentation, Swiss design student Arno Mathies talks about luxury and industrial design, and all things he made and experienced at ECAL (École cantonale d'art de Lausanne). For one of his projects Mathies worked with a carpenter to learn new techniques with wood. He than associated the wood with magnets to create lights that have an adaptable light source.

This project was interesting because it allowed me to explore the world of personalising objects, says Mathies.

Another of Mathies’ projects used cardboard to make a series of personalised and recyclable tables. Mathies also talks about 2D and 3D projects that employed paper and thin metal in the production process.
