Selected works by Christophe Guberan

Research, Design

Christophe Guberan, a Swiss industrial designer based in Lausanne, is currently teaching product design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The buzzing and innovative ecosystem of the Greater Boston Area allows him to augment his practice while experimenting with new research and technological development.

Guberan’s research is often guided by strong attraction to materials and their intrinsic features, always starting with a simple observation of materials – for example the water-sensitive properties of the paper.
 By hacking devices, he challenges the limits 
of the matter to rethink the traditional production processes that implement
 new aesthetics and qualities. The evolution from his early project “Hydro-Fold” to “Active textile” and “Wood fibers” illustrates the rewarding partnership as the projects have the same guiding principles and give few solutions for new processes.
