Industrial Design Internship at
Units

The Opportunity

At Units, we value a plural approach to design: we are looking for someone who is curious and ambitious! We are a team of designers with a passion for science and technology. We work for clients from different sectors:

  • We collaborate with medtech & deeptech startups at all stages of their innovation development, both on UX and product design (Essilor, Inbrain Neuroelectronics, Robeauté, Sorbonne University...) ;
  • We design consumer products on an industrial scale, placing technological innovations and manufacturing processes at the heart of the issues (GA Smart Building, Comintes, Solideo...);
  • We design and manufacture scenographic and immersive devices for events, brands and venues (Stone Island, Grand Palais, Adidas, Palais de Tokyo, Point Éphémère...)

We are looking for a design student to work with us for 4 to 6 months (or co-op student) on a variety of projects ranging from robotic artworks to industrial products.


If you join us, your daily tasks will include:

  • Formulate concepts / products and model them in 3D ;
  • Produce visuals (still and moving images) to communicate these concepts;
  • Imagine new scenographic projects;
  • Respond to calls for projects;
  • Carry out aesthetic and theoretical monitoring of technological issues.

Profile

  • Experience in 3D concept modelling;
  • Ability to develop complex thinking to respond to briefs combining technical, social and aesthetic issues
  • High level of requirement on the formal and narrative quality of the proposals developed;
  • A taste for teamwork in a knowledge-sharing approach
  • Ability to take initiatives in order to participate in the development of the studio.

And it\'s even better if you are

  • Interested in technological issues: from software to machines, music or social sciences.
  • Comfortable working in a multi-disciplinary team. We are not looking for technical experts but for creative people who are sensitive to related fields of design.
