Minima Cinema — Professional Practice Project


“Objects of curiosity, the rooms of Minima Cinema were deployed in the heart of cities throughout Switzerland to celebrate the origins of cinema and its nomadic nature, and the ethos of the the Festival Tous Ecrans, dedicated to reaching the greatest number of people possible, cinephiles or simply curious, not forgetting those who would be unable to visit it”.

Minima Cinema distilled the cinematic experience to its minimal expression. The design intentionally disassociated itself from the archetypal to stress the experiential. The spaces were sculpted by the student group offering them the possibility to physically experience and assess their own design decisions and leave their own mark. These modules were then fibre-glassed to weatherproof and reinforce them to withstand a month of festival activities across Switzerland.

Minima Cinema — Professional Practice Project


Les cabines Minima Cinema, projet conçu et réalisé par les étudiant-e-s en Master Design Espace et communication. Les cabines ont voyagé dans les villes les plus emblématiques du pays entre le 13 octobre et le 14 novembre afin d'annoncer le Festival Cinéma Tous Ecrans. 
A l’intérieur, un programme en boucle de films réalisés par des étudiants-e-s de la HEAD, Département Cinéma, des séries web internationales et courts métrages pour enfants avec La lanterne Magique. Ces cabines ont été entièrement fabriquées  en polystyrène par les étudiants, pour être ensuite revêtues de fibres de verre résiné afin de résister aux différentes intempéries des divers villes et lieux visités.
