With over 6 years of experience, the studio is renowned for its unexpected experimentation with cutting-edge technologies. INT delivers immersive digital experiences that place audience engagement and emotions at the forefront.

INT was founded in 2018 by Laura Nieder, David Colombini, and Marc Dubois, alumni of ECAL and also the three artists of Fragmentin, a collective at the intersection of art and engineering whose artworks are conceived as spaces for discussion on crucial contemporary issues such as climate change.


Within our studio, we prioritise diversity and multidisciplinarity. Our constantly evolving team possesses a variety of skills: artistic direction, project management, graphic design, scenography, programming, engineering, and manufacturing.

These competences enable us to approach complex commission from idea to realisation, including prototyping stages. Over the years, we have also built a strong local network of partners (suppliers, manufacturers) and freelancers we can rely on.

Furthermore, the founders of INT are regularly invited to hold conferences or workshops at art, design, and architecture Universities in Switzerland. Additionally, they are members of the committees of METAA, Pyxis Exploration and Pôle Numérique.

Our prototyping workshop is located within a makerspace, allowing us to work with wood and metal. We also have a stock of electronic components and various machines (CNS, laser cutter, 3D printer, etc.) that enable us to quickly test scenographic effects or interactive and mechanical systems.
