I am a Brussels based designer and researcher. My work celebrates sharing as a methodology and opportunity to redefine design processes.My 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.
I am 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.
→Crossing Parallels will be digitaly presented at The New Reality exhibition by Adorno during the London Design Festival (September 12-20th).
