Coming from a family of architects, I started studying design when I was 13, as part of the design high school at the École Boulle in Paris. I later studied at the École Duperré to prepare a BTS in graphic design, in the printed media section.
Looking for a more tangible approach to design, I extended my field of action through an exchange at the UDP of Santiago de Chile, where I got to discover product design and materials, intertwined with graphic design.
Back in Paris, I started studying industrial creation at ENSCI Les Ateliers in Paris where I graduated in december 2022. During my masters education, I had the chance to join the MEDES program, linking 7 european design schools, which gave me the opportunity to explore foreign ways to design through two years of exchange in two different design schools in Europe.
I studied at the Glasgow School of Art and at the Köln International School of Design (Cologne), in Integrated Design.

During my studies, I had the chance to collaborate with professional designers and architects through internships : I worked with Thomas Schnur in 2020, with Vraiment Vraiment in 2021 and with collectif dallas in 2022. 

I am currently working in Brussels as part of the TAAT collective and of the LVR network.
I work independantly and publish under the instagram page @into.trees experiments to interact with the trees surrounding us.

A few things about my approach

First of all, the importance of places.
I always start a design project trying to settle it in its context and my own life projects always have this strong relationship with the places I settle in.
I see a lot of potential in field research because it allows projects to be integrated in the local communities : that proximity with the user is what I want to explore, which led me to look at abandoned churches, fisheries and food forests and to base my proposals on the insights from their users.

Engaging with people and generating social interactions are often what my projects aim for :
in a world that I feel is getting colder with technology, I see design as a great tool to get people to meet and communicate, because I believe it is the way to shift our old systems and structures around, through collaboration.

I believe in the way design can educate, and you can often find this ambition in my projects : I expressed this pedagogic aim by simplifying a radio studio, making a book easier to understand through interaction, giving old people the tools to communicate their ideas, teaching citizens how to grow their own medicine or how to build a signage system in public space. I am also now an educator myself, collaborating with institutions across Europe such as the KISD in Cologne, the Cantau high school in Anglet or the school of design in Zagreb.

An other constant line is the fascination for the past : I think that design can add value to an essential heritage that is forgotten, may it be wood turning, sun-dials, FM radios,
ancient crafts and agroforestry. The challenge is always for them to find a new meaning in our contemporary lives.

Coming from a graphic design background, I always saw the potential in images to impact people and to influence behaviors. My earliest projects allowed me to find new ways to use visualization through the practice of spatial design and speculation.

My most recent work has been focusing on sustainable production chains. I love understanding the way daily products are made and transmitting that knowledge to people for the sake of culture and autonomy. This angle got me to explore soap making, basketry, ceramics, woodwork, spices, flour, color and plant fiber.
I recently have been focusing on the theme of forestry and I am currently developping a food forest project in Germany and pedagogical modules to teach people how to use plants for food, color and materials.

I am always willing to take part in new initiatives and projects so feel free to contact me.
