HEAD x USM : Space Duality

September 2019

Workshop led by Simon Husslein assited by Lara Grandchamp with the projets of Mélissa Ferrara, Brian Grenier, Kanya-On Khurewathanakul, Julia Miclos Moura, Hyeryeon Nam, Johanna Picard, Rébecca Sanmartin, Caroline Savary, Sonia Schwerdtel, Ophélie Surchat, Lydia Campana, Aurélie Chêne.

Space Duality in a Virtual Reality exhibition offering completely new space-related experiences that are immersive and deeply emotional. Entering seven different VR projects while being placed inside or on top of built furnitures does transfer the viewer into an unseen environment full of surprises. While some of the projects have an enchanted charm about them, others challenge us on how we would define what “interior spaces” are in general.

The project was set up during a whole semester in the department of Interior Architecture at HEAD, Geneva School of Art and Design. A group of twelve students developed the projects as part of the USM Design Grant program. The study grant was launched by the Fondation USM to encourage innovation by rewarding a student’s project.  This competition takes place each year during the Design Days, alternating between Geneva and Lausanne, and is granted in turn to a student from HEAD and Ecal.
