Christophe Guberan, from the Industrial Design Bachelor Program at ECAL (The Arts School in Lausanne), conceived and developed the Hydro-Fold project, combining modern technology (ink-jet printer) and a very well-known and accessible material: paper. Hydro-Fold is a project that aims to explore the properties of paper and to print patterns that contort pieces of paper from 2D into specific 3D form in just a few minutes.
