A week-long workshop in partnership with Castorama to prototype a “tear drop” solution for the design and layout of a trailer.

In groups of three, the 3rd year students in BDes Transport Design prototyped a “tear drop” living solution for 2 adults minimum with basic functions (sleeping quarters, kitchen, storage, lighting) and optional functions (bike transport, electrical autonomy, gray water tank, chemical toilet, outdoor shower, awning) in a trailer.

The 6 project concepts were presented on 23 February 2018, together with their open source plans. Christophe François, an industrial designer and creator of Décathlon’s B’twin and François-Xavier Poulain, project manager for innovation and collaborative economy at Castorama will choose one of the concepts. Castorama will finance the production of the prototype and promote it by taking it on tour round their stores in France, and at the same time will promote the Transport Design section of L’École de design.

The students: Adnane Benmaajouz, Timothée Caron-Bernier, Gaëtan Chaudet, Albéric Chevallier, Corentin Dauvert, Laureane Escudier, Charles Guedon, Nael Hanras, Guillaume Heck, Pierre Heliou, Briac Laforge, Pierre Le Scoul, Martin Lucas, Pierre-Antoine Masse, Julia Nicoli, Alexandre Nicolle, Michael Rasolofo, Elsa Sainte-Claire, Marie Torrens.
