EnsAD, Paris: Presentation of the Academy

École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs


The École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsAD), founded in 1766, is a state-sector higher education institute under the authority of the French Ministry for Culture and Communication. Offering a wealth of intellectual, creative and artistic opportunities, its mottos are: multidisciplinarity, partnership and innovation.

On a similar scale to the leading UK and US design schools, EnsAD has over 700 French and foreign students, and offers courses in ten sectors: Product Design, Spatial Art, Animation, Multimedia/Graphic Design, Textile and Texture Design, Fashion Design, Printed Images, Photography/Video, Interior Design, Stage Design.
The five-year course involves a specialisation in one of the ten sectors and leads to a state-approved Master’s diploma (Bac + 5 years of higher education).

The school’s research laboratory, EnsadLab, also offers ten or more research programmes in the field of art and design, with a roll of around fifty research students (all holders of a Master’s degree or acknowledged as having a high professional level).
Textile and Texture Design

The courses are aimed at developing creativity and innovation. The skills learned are those required in the fields of textiles and materials for the home, fashion, and the development of new materials.

The EnsAD-trained designer must be capable of analysing every parameter of a project: he/she is responsible for research and creation, for proposing a set of professional solutions and then ensuring their implementation, monitoring, communication and promotion.

The theoretical and practical courses address all the aspects – technical, sociological, aesthetic – of textile design, from the initial idea to the finished product (creation of textile graphic designs based on careful and informed reflection, a thorough grasp of materials and of varied and interdependent technological practices).

The courses follow a logical progression from an understanding of the components of textiles and materials to using them creatively within the confines of technical, industrial and economic constraints.

Students learn the techniques of weaving, knitting, printing, colour, drawing and materials. The course includes a mandatory professional internship of at least three months.

Design textile & matière

L’enseignement vise à développer la créativité et l’innovation. Les compétences acquises s’exercent dans les domaines du textile et des matières destinées à l'habitat, à la mode et à la recherche de nouveaux matériaux. Le concepteur-créateur, formé à l'École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, doit être capable d’analyser tous les paramètres d’un projet : il en assure la recherche et la création et propose un ensemble de solutions professionnelles dont il dirigera la mise en oeuvre, le contrôle, la communication et la promotion.

L’enseignement théorique et pratique aborde tous les aspects techniques, sociologiques, esthétiques de la création « textile », de l’élaboration à sa réalisation (création de graphismes textiles à partir d’une réflexion aboutie, maîtrise des matières et des pratiques technologiques diverses et interdépendantes).
L’enseignement suit une progression qui va de la connaissance des composantes du textile et des matériaux à leur exploitation créative en intégrant les contraintes techniques, industrielles et économiques.

Il passe par l’apprentissage du tissage, de la maille, de l’impression, de la couleur, du dessin et des matières.

Il comporte un stage professionnel obligatoire de trois mois minimum.

COARSE & TENUOUS - CONTRASTS FROM REUTLINGEN UNIVERSITY


www.td.reutlingen-university.de/

The textile design students of Reutlingen University exhibit their works of the 5th semester topic COARSE & TENUOUS.
You can see the results from the university´s textile workshops on the wall: a woven fabric, a knitted fabric, a screen print and a digital print. All the items were finished in our sewing lab. Work samples and already finished accessories are located on the platform.
The briefing was to visualize the topic in such a manner that the materials themselves show the contrast of coarse and tenuous.

The fabrics show this as follows: the warp in the jacquard weaving is a thicker yarn that contrasts with a finer weft yarn. The knitted fabric was made on a machine with a fineness of E8, where waves contrast with the smooth surface. While the screen print is almost three-dimensional because of the puff print, the digital print shows a lightness with its transparent elements. The stools´ covers are experimental works, related to the topic.
Please have a seat and enjoy!


Studenten/students: Petra Biggel, Christina Liadeli, Charlotte Lohmaier, Veronika Peters,
Kerstin Sattler, Julia Tewes
Assistenz/coaching: Elke Riesch
Betreuung/supervision: Prof. Brigitte Scheufele


Die Textildesignstudenten des 5. Semesters der Hochschule Reutlingen zeigen Ihre Arbeiten
zum Thema „Grob & Fein“.

An der Wand sehen Sie die Ergebnisse aus den Textilwerkstäten der Hochschule: Gewebe,
Gestrick, Digitaldruck und Siebdruck. Alle Arbeiten wurden in unserem Nälabor konfektioniert. Auf dem Podest befinden sich Arbeitsproben und bereits fertige Accessoires.

Die Anforderung des Themas war Entwüfe so zu visualisieren, dass die Materialien selbst
den Kontrast von „grob“ bzw. „fein“ aufweisen. Die Wandbeispiele zeigen dies wie folgt: Die Kette im Jacquardgewebe ist aus einem relativ groben Garn, dass mit einem feinem Schussfaden kontrastiert. Aus dem Gestrick, das auf einer Maschine mit der Feinheit E8 gearbeitet wurde, erheben sich Wellen, die im Gegensatz zu dem glatten Untergrund stehen.
Wärend der Siebdruck eine fast dreidimensionale Struktur durch Schaumpigmente
aufweist, zeigt der Digitaldruck durch seine transparenten Elemente eine Leichtigkeit.

Die Bezüge der Hocker sind experimentelle Arbeiten, die das Thema ebenfalls aufgreifen.
Nehmen Sie Platz und genießen Sie!

The gardener without a garden

„The garden has become the ultimate luxury, because its simple requirements have become such rare and precious commoditie in our society: time, room, and attention.“

Dieter Kienast


Lara Bulla's bachelor degree project takes the garden as its  theme – its periodic growth patterns, as suggestive of ideas and stories. The design process can be likened to the cycle of growth in the garden, which begins hesitantly  and gradually leads to voluptuous flowering and fruiting.  Because this splendour is transitory and plants must soon wither and fade, the collection includes also moments of fragility and transparency  suggestive of the decaying end of the botanical year.

Gärtner ohne Garten

„Der Garten ist der letzte Luxus unserer Tage, denn er fordert das, was in unserer Gesellschaft am seltensten und kostbarsten geworden ist: Zeit, Zuwendung und Raum.“

Dieter Kienast
ullas Bachelor-Abschluss-Arbeit nimmt den Garten als Aufgangspunkt. Der Garten dient ihr als Ort der Inspiration für Ideen und Geschichten, als Ausdrucksform von Wachstum.
Der gestalterische Prozess kann verglichen werden mit dem Wachsen eines Gartens. Was anfänglich zaghaft zu spriessen beginnt, entwickelt sich allmählich zu einer Üppigkeit. Da Pflanzen abe vergänglich sind, hält ihre Üppigkeit nicht an, und so beinhaltet diese Stoffkollektion auch fragilere und durchlässigere Momente, wie sie beim Zerfall - am Ende des natürlichen Kreislaufs  - entstehen.

Textile Design at HSLU
Textile design relies on the interplay of colour, material, pattern and technology. The convergence of creative ideas, adequate technical implementation, the staging and marketing of products are developed in a business and ecological context

The course
Students learn about various means of expression: Ranging from the experimental development of artistic ideas to the actual knitting, embroidery, print-making and weaving, as well as the use of digital technology. They also learn to apply their artistic abilities and to align them with the target group. The technical aspect is, however, just as relevant as the ability to contextualise ideas and results. Graduates of the Bachelor programme are qualified to assume responsibility for design projects independently in companies or to supplement their studies with a Master of Arts in Design.

Applied fields
Graduates of the course are qualified to work in the supply chain in design departments within the textile industry, in purchasing offices of trading companies and in design agencies. They can also work independently as stylists, costume designers or as freelance designers in the international sector. They are able to analyse clients’ design briefings and develop textiles in accordance with aesthetic, haptic and functional criteria as well as with current market demands. They are able to establish interdisciplinary relations between textile design and affiliated fields such as architecture, product design or fashion.

Textildesign an der HSLU
Textildesign entsteht im Zusammenspiel von Farbe, Material, Muster und Technologie. Künstlerisches Entwerfen, adäquates technisches Umsetzen, Inszenieren von Produkten und die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Markt geschehen in einem wirtschaftlichen und ökologischen Kontext.

Studium
Die Inhalte des Studiums sind das Erlernen von Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten des künstlerisch-experimentellen Entwurfs über angewandtes Stricken, Sticken, Drucken, Weben bis zu digitalen Entwurfstechniken. Das gestalterische Können wird mit Anwendungen verbunden und mit der Zielgruppe in Einklang gebracht. Das handwerkliche Tun ist ebenso relevant wie die Fähigkeit, Ideen und Resultate zu kontextualisieren. Als Bachelor ist man bereit, in Firmen eigenverantwortlich Designaufgaben zu übernehmen oder das Studium vertiefend mit einem Master of Arts in Design zu ergänzen.

Tätigkeitsfelder
Textildesigner/innen arbeiten in der Wertschöpfungskette in Designabteilungen der Textilindustrie, in den Einkaufsbüros von Handelsunternehmen und in Agenturen. Sie machen sich selbstständig als Stylisten/-innen, arbeiten im Kostümbereich und als Freelance Designer in der internationalen Branche. Sie analysieren Designbriefings der Kunden und entwickeln Textilien, die ästhetisch, haptisch und funktionell sind und aktuelle Ansprüche erfüllen. Aus der Perspektive des Textildesigns können interdisziplinäre Bezüge zu verwandten Themenfeldern hergestellt werden wie Architektur, Produktdesign oder Mode.

SCREECH! from METROPOLIA UNIVERSITY, Helsinki

For information about the Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences please visit http://www.metropolia.fi/en

The 2011 exhibition was constructed under the working title called "Screech!". Screech being the sound you hear when the needle of an old fashioned record player slides along the surface of a vinyl record. It is also the sound you hear when you realize something isn’t quite right, something is a bit strange, maybe uniquely new. Screech! gives the viewer the opportunity to awaken to new ideas.

The exhibition itself will be made to look like a shop. A shop where things are not like you would expect them to be. The shop will have elements of humor, irony, perhaps even sarcasm in it.

The textiles in the exhibition are made with mainly weaving and knitting techniques. The emphasis is on the skills to manipulate textile materials and surfaces in a contemporary way. Fabrics done with these traditional textile techniques will be embellished and modernized with the addition of embroidery and experimental surface construction.

The main objective in participating at Heimtextil is to familiarize textile design students with working in an international design environment. The exhibition is a perfect way for the Helsinki Metropolia University to bring the students to the centerpoint of a global textile fair, where they can see and experience activities both in the design context as well as business. The possibility to network with both other universities and their students and with possible future employers is also a big factor in the participation.

The participating students are at the moment on their second year studying for their BA in textile design. In this 2011 project there are students both from the standard education as well as from the group of mature students, who study during evenings. The students participate in a series of different courses, which are all aimed towards the exhibition. These courses include for example graphic design, innovative textile materials, marketing and communication. Naturally most of the courses are still mainly textile design based.

We are taking part in the exhibition CAMPUS for the fifth time. Participation in such an important event is a very interesting and valuable experience for our students. It offers them the opportunity to confront their own achievements with accomplishments of other European art schools.




STRZEMIŃSKI ACADEMY OF FINE ART AND DESIGN IN ŁÓDŹ
The Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts and Design was established in 1945. Today it consists of four faculties and offers two levels of study, Bachelor and Master of Art: Faculty of Textile Art and Fashion Design; Graphic Art and Painting; Industrial Design and Interior Architecture; Visual Education.
FACULTY OF TEXTILE ART AND FASHION DESIGN
The Department of Textile Art at Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz is the only unit in Poland that provides education for students to become highly trained textile designers. The specific character of teaching in this faculty rests on systematic development of both students’ artistic sensitivity and their painting skills.

Currently, the four studios of the Department of Textile Art are run by teachers with vast practical and theoretical knowledge of industrial textiles design as well as artistic achievements which ensure them a place amongst the world’s best “textile artists”.
Studio of Decorative Textiles – professor Krystyna Górska, Aneta Anderwald M.A.
Studio of  Experimental Textiles – Lidia Choczaj Ph.D. Dominika Czekalska M.A.
Studio of Carpet and Wall-Hangings – professor Jolanta Rudzka-Habisiak, Izabela Walczak M.A.
Studio of Paper – professor Ewa Latkowska – Żychska, dr Magdalena Soboń
Our students’ projects come into being by means of different methods – they can be either hand made, for instance with the use of traditional painting techniques or they can be made with the use of specialist computer applications and software. This enables their implementation both in the school’s weaving plants and on the premises of companies we cooperate with, using the newest technologies. Moreover, textile companies are our allies as far as finding new ways of designers’ training is concerned. They allow students to complete both their coursework and, later on, a diploma; they organize trainings, sponsor certain contests and initiate artistic and integrating activities for young designers. One of such activities is ‘rooms for free’ program, within the framework of which we cooperate with 18 schools from Europe, which specialize in textile design.
IT IS OUR PLEASURE TO TAKE PART IN CAMPUS@HEIMTEXTIL FOR THE 5th TIME !

The curriculum of the Studio of Experimental Textiles involves design for tapestry, both artistic and industrial. In the catalogue of realizations from this studio one can find various kinds of works: manufactured of yarns with the use of classical techniques on harness or jacquard looms – traditional, flat woven textiles (often used as part of stage design), fabrics for garments, textile objects – made of non-typical materials, as well as textile installations. Design tasks are elaborated for every student individually (with regard to other specializations of his selection) The intention is to assist the student in the individual development of his/her creative passions and interests in the most extensive way. Our aim is also to train skills, which help in combining various design tasks for the benefit of the whole realization. Those who search for space for their non-typical actions, installations, original ways of artistic expression in textile art will also find place and assistance in the creative inquiry and experiments. 
written for The Studio of Experimental Textiles by  Lidia Choczaj Ph.D., Dominika Krogulska – Czekalska M.A.
 

We wish all the participants of CAMPUS@Heimtextil 2011 a great exhibition, interest of the spectators, contacts with many interesting people and success in creative work after graduation. All the best!
We express gratitude to our sponsor -  Stiftung für deutsch-polnische Zusammenarbeit / Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation - who supports the participation of Department of Textile Art- Academy of Fine Art and Design in Lodz, in CAMPUS@HEIMTEXTIL 2011.

CAMPUS @ HEIMTEXTIL 2011 welcomes a group of tutors from ORBITATO, the Institute for Architecture, Fashion and Product Design in Pomerode, from the Santa Catarina region of Brazil. Under the headline CONTEXTURE, student projects willl be presented using mixed textile and other materials, graphic works and image projection. Fashion and design projects combined with social actions conducted by Orbitato will also be shown.                               
„We would like to represent our region Santa Catarina as a strong center  of applied design in Brazil, and showcase the projects of Orbitato to the academic community and visitors at Heimtextil 2011“, formulates Celaine Refosco, general director, as her goals for the fair.  

REMÖTIL by LUM - a lesson in sustainable Design

academy link: http://www.kh-berlin.de/   
authors' link: reuterstr68@gmail.com

 
As a final work in textile and surface design at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee, Germany, Lisa Spengler and Moa Hallgren designed a collection of interior elements, made from donated clothes, fabrics and from furniture relics found on the streets of Berlin.

 
The project focused strongly on textile handicraft, applied in a variety of ways to combine textiles with other fragments. The idea of using second-hand materials made it possible to develop a unique group of interior objects, transforming discharged items into valuables.

Objectives for the Heimtextil participation
In addition to representing the Art College Weissensee Berlin at the HEIMTEXTIL 2011 fair as recently graduated designers from the Textile and Surface Design Department, we share a personal interest in showing our work within an international textile context.

We hope to come in contact with the industry as well as a wide variety of professionals working in the textile and interiors fields, including students and designers, with whom to share experiences and potentially form future collaborations.  In particularly we hope to have an exchange with other designers and makers who are either interested or are already working within the field of ecologically sustainable design.

Aesthetic vision for the exhibit
  • to communicate a mode of ethic design that is playful and delightful, celebrating textile craft
  • through a method of up-cycling to express the potential of transformation of discarded objects into useful and valuable unique design objects
Textile techniques being used: Sewing, braiding and weaving

Participants: Moa Hallgren & Lisa Spengler, exhibiting a collaborative Diploma Project developed at the Art College Weissensee Berlin
Tutor: Professor Dr. Zane Berzina

Textile and Surface Design Department at the Art College Weissensee Berlin
The Art College Weissensee Berlin promotes cross-disciplinary work between all its departments. At the Textile and Surface Design Department students are focusing on the investigation and design of surfaces and membrane systems which – within our contemporary technological and socio-cultural contexts - are becoming increasingly complex. Surfaces form a link to many different fields of application, such as fashion, interiors and architecture, and can be the basis for developing new design opportunities and skills. This course fosters a design approach that combines pragmatic professionalism, critical thinking, trans-disciplinary exchange and aesthetic autonomy.

GEOMETRIC SURFACES from MOME, Budapest, Hungary

Second year textile design students from the Moholy-Nagy Academy of Fine Arts and Design, MOME Academy, Budapest, Hungary, developed prints based on three-dimensional paper cuttings, creating  repetitive organic and geometric patterns.
