I’m a designer,

who explore flexible materials

and their know-how around the world.

 

Combining ancestral techniques with digital manufacturing tools, I develop innovative and unexpected applications of these materials for the interior architecture and design sectors.

 

I create exceptional materials and objects, innovative and unexpected, which are distinguished by their sobriety and the ingenuity of their manufacturing method.

 

Resulting from an encounter or a collaboration, these projects offer a new perspective on a culture, a community, a technique, or a know-how.

BIO

Graduated from ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 2010, I then got involved with artisans by working for the SPIN (Sustainable Product Innovation) program, based in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. During 3 years, I lived in Hanoi and collaborate with companies of ceramics, bamboo, paper, wood, etc. I also created a team of designers and run Future Living Studio, a temporary design studio based in Hanoi, then Phnom Penh.

Back in Paris in 2014, I trained in new digital manufacturing tools and participated in the launch of TechShop Ateliers Leroy Merlin. A maker space dedicated to prototyping and collaborative design, where I worked as a project consultant for 4 years.

At the same time, I launched my activity as an independent designer and joined the Ateliers de Paris incubator in 2016. I then began a research and innovation work on tatami mats as part of the Kyoto Contemporary program. In January 2018, I was invited to exhibit and present this work at a conference at the Maison et Objet fair. I have also been a speaker at Beirut Design Week, at the Goethe Institute of Hanoi, at Parsons Paris, etc.
