A Gateway to Science and Technology at the EPFL
SICPA has a long-standing partnership with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne – EPFL. A demonstration of SICPA’s on-going commitment to the local communities in which it operates and its engagement with the best educational, scientific and technological institutions.
In 2016, SICPA joined forces with the EPFL and Caran d’Ache to bring to life Project 24, an original idea by Giordano Favi.
A contemporary large scale artwork enlivening the arrival area for the metro and main underpass leading to the EPFL – the public gateway to the institution.
Eleven of the formulae appearing in the artwork were put forward by SICPA employees, following an internal competition.
And the visionary words of Albert Amon “Sans l’encre, la pensée aurait le sens du vide” (‘Without ink, thoughts would be without substance”) are projected on the passage for future generations of students and academics to contemplate and be inspired by.
