When a printing center buys a new printer, it’s not just a new tool; it’s a huge machine. For the inauguration of such a piece of equipment, a design contest was organized at the University of Art and Design in Lausanne to augment the reception held in the factory. A set was designed using all the things you can find in a printing factory and an interactive floor gave a new dimension to paper.
SIGMASIX is a Geneva - based experimental studio combining a large spectrum of practices with a focus on lighting design, scenography, museography, mechanical effects and installations. Each project is seen as a new take on existing technologies, interactive strategies, and a new opportunity to merge techniques and art to offer unique and exceptional experiences.
As a practice SIGMASIX is in a constant search for magic and poetry obtained by allowing alien technologies cohabit together. The studio’s ambition is to repurpose technologies to spaces and objects. It does so with an extraordinary capacity in integrating technicalities to the point of dilution where perception breaks down to the core of the concept.
Initiated in 2004 by Swiss artists Eric Morzier and Florian Pittet, SIGMASIX works both on art and research projects as much as commercial and consulting ones. Today, the studio has a small team and works with a vast network of freelancers and interns to make sure all project and ideas are aligned with each and every client’s needs.
