Matières spécifiques questions the current design and use of appliances within the home, whereby objects with high energy consumption and planned obsolescence have become the norm. The designer proposes a more sustainable approach, using basic physics to ensure an economy of means. An earthenware air humidifier uses capillary action to diffuse water through its paper-clay surface, while a woven tapestry acts as an air conditioner. Tubes containing a phase-change material, a substance capable of storing and releasing large amounts of energy, are woven within the structure, absorbing heat and producing a decorative blue pattern as the material cools.
Always curious to know how objects work, it was very early that I found my way : to design objects. After a Bachelor in Product Design at ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres in Paris, I had the chance to integrate ENSCI-Les Ateliers in 2013, the national school of industrial design in Paris. I graduated in June 2018 with my project combining research into materials, dialogues with engineers and industrial design : "Matières Spécifiques". The project won the Special Mention of the Jury of the Villa Noailles 2019, it was also awarded with a Red Dot Design Award "Best of the best" and exhibited at international fairs. I am concerned about providing new answers to today's ecological challenges. That's why I design objects that question obsolescence, the excess of technique and the over-consumption of objects dedicated to domestic comfort. Based in Paris, I therefore develop research projects next to my industrial designer activity, with the desire to always be fair and pragmatic.morePortfolio LinkedIn Instagram
