She/Her

is a french designer based between the Netherlands and France. She recently graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, NL. Her practice is based on empirical and empathic research and often results in creating tools, methods or experiences, rather than ready-made solutions. In her work, she uses hacks and subversion in an attempt to shift our relationship with technology.

She also wonders what design can do to challenge our beliefs & habits in a finite, ecologically threatened world. She prefers to work with open-source resources, re-purposed materials, energy-aware approaches and DIY techniques. Previous projects take the form of websites, objects, instruments, publications & installations among others. Recently, she collaborated with Low-Tech Magazine (2021-Now), Écume Studio (Nov 2022) and Onomatopee (May 2021).

Jobs

Also, she develops and designs websites on request, with an attention for their energy consumption. She is open for collaborations and job opportunities. CV

With Caroline Guinet and Chira Valomini I had the chance to discuss about my practice, open-source design, my project Plantenna and our Treehouse project with Anna!
