After completing a bachelor’s degree in spatial design and a first internship in Manila in the Philippines, Marie went to India to join the Transcultural Design Master’s program. She finished her course with an internship in Shanghai, a city she considers to be a veritable laboratory for design research and experimentation. For Marie, it is vital to address the social aspects of environmental issues today. She draws her inspiration from nature’s organic shapes as well as from innovation and pared-down contemporary style. Today, Marie is working as an interior designer at Austerveil Architecture & Design in Shanghai, an agency with a strong focus on the environmental impact of its projects.
