Hydro-Fold by Christophe Guberan

Hydro Fold - ECAL - Christophe Guberan Christophe Guberan, a third-year Bachelor student of Industrial Design at ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne created Hydro-Fold, a project that experiments with self folding inkjet printed paper. “The idea is to give shape to paper through the simple use of water, adapting an existing printer to control the phenomenon. This experimental approach allowed me to explore new avenues of research,” explains Christophe Guberan. Indeed, this project is based on a totally new experimental process which, using a printer, a simple sheet of tracing paper and water, creates a transition from 2D to 3D, generating tiny volumes in just a few minutes.
