bio @amandine__david

Amandine David is a Brussels based designer and researcher whose work celebrates sharing as a methodology and opportunity to redefine design processes.

    Her research is located at the crossroad of traditional crafts and digital practices. It usually takes shape in the creation of tools and material experimentation libraries.
    Amandine is also the co-founder of Hors Pistes, a nomadic residency program that initiates encounters between craftsmen and designers and explores the value of trans-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaborations.

Weaving code project is part of the exhibition FORMAT Changing attitudes, at Z33, Hasselt (September 15th-November 24th).
Qiperukkat pieces are part of the exhibition Hors Pistes - Conversations between artisans and designers at mudac, Lausanne (July 10th-January 12th).
