Investigating multidisciplinary narratives

Born in 1994 in Burgundy, France, I am a freelance Designer and Illustrator based in Paris.

My practice is at the crossing border between research, art and design. With a peculiar sensibility for the stories that objects withold within their context -carrying on an heritage, a savoir faire, a peculiar materiality- , my design approach investigates different mediums to create multi-layered tales.

With a strong emphasis on cultural, historical and poetic matters, I aim to unveil and adress the stories and issues laying behind our objects and manufacturing methods.
Indeed, I believe the role of design is to mediate a conversation. Often refering to an atler-mondialist thinking, I aim to give a voice to the unspoken, using different mediums such as material research, illustration and edition.

As for a general matter, my works are motivated by social and environmental  issues, crafts, beauty of the ordinary and story telling.
