Abstract: Book Description: The Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne (ECAL) has evolved from a regional school into an internationally renowned institution. This success story owes much to ECAL director Pierre Keller, but there is also a diverse team of instructors and students, whose work--much of which is quite well known--is showcased in this volume. Invaluable for any instructor in the field of design, the teaching principles that have led to ECAL's rise are documented, along with accounts of its subsequent successes. Today ECAL is at the top of the international game in graphic design, photography and, especially, industrial design. ECAL frequently garners commissions from museums and companies like Christofle, Swarovski, Nestle and Coca-Cola and has been included in numerous exhibitions and publications. In addition to staff and students, key players in the world of design and criticism, such as Paola Antonelli, Stephen Shore, Rolf Fehlbaum, Paolo Roversi, Ronan Bouroullec and Fernando and Humberto Company contribute a professional perspective.
