Creation as language /

Both my grandparents were architects very much focused on design (btw my twin brother is also architect) and my mother very creative with widely spread manual skills. Therefore I grew up surrounded by creation, languages, observation, which allowed my expression through volumes and materials. I love architecture but I was seduced by this intimacy between an object and its user and the idea to be a part of others’ daily life.

My first atelier was set up on board of an old bus parked outside my family’s house. A capsule of independence immaculate of any outside influence. Whatever happened in there stayed uncontaminated. Then I followed my instincts and positioned myself in a constant learning process, which does not mean I was always right, but everything happens for a reason and helps building a route. Finally, I remained humble before any mission, be it for a simple object or something complex, I always got engaged with the project and went deep.

What is Design /

Design is a way of living, and several definitions could be valid. In my case, design is a group of organic actions and reactions mix of emotions, observation, interactions, creativity and continuity.

I would like to have a visible style, but my style is a sensitive approach to every challenge and is defined by the interaction and collaboration of everyone concerned in the project when pushing their techniques, knowledge and savoir-faire to new territories.
