About

Independant designer graduated from the Boulle School, I combine in my work craftsmanship and design, tradition and modernity.

Anchored in near or distant territories, I observe cultures and histories, techniques and materials. The richness of the world's cultural heritages inspire me throughout my

...

projects. Following this lead thread, braided of Human and Nature, I create sensible and sensitive products : “objets métissés”.

Furthermore, experimentation is at the heart of my creation. The new features of the material are my library of ideas ; then I invent new uses.

Fundamentally my approach is respectful of the environment, from design to production.
