Lazy Bytes

Le Lieu du Design, Paris
5 February - 1 March 2014


Most living rooms have a television. And a device to control it. Sixty years after the development of the first remote control (Lazy Bones), students of four design universities have concerned themselves with reinterpreting the product.


The Lazy Bytes project evolved from a collaboration by EPFL + ECAL Lab with the company Kudelski. The students taking part hail from the Royal College of Art in London, the ENSCI-Les Ateliers de Paris, Parsons The New School for Design in New York and ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. Their task is to concentrate on the value of the object in relation to the user and to reduce the number of functions it performs. The intention is to improve and renew our everyday relationship with the digital world. The results of this project will be demonstrated in an exhibition in Paris which will be opened on 4 February 2014 at 6.30 p.m.
