How do you envision modularity in your work?
I envision modularity as a means to develop new ideas rather than a functional aspiration. By integrating this concept as a means of creative research, it allows me to consider new possibilities and explore my imagination further.
In what way your creations are part of a dialogue between nature and craftsmanship?
The “Rise from the abyss” series confronts blown glass with organic elements from a natural landscape. The craftsman blows freely on stones ; like a wild landscape, the molten glass evolves according to its environment and shapes itself on the relief before being captured in time.
How do concepts of origins and heritage have a role in your design practice?
“Infinite territory“, a series of bronze door handles, explores the notion of value and thoughtfulness of architectural details. By giving them an artistic dimension, I seek to elevate the value of objects that have been standardized over time.Like a piece of Jewellery, they become desirable objects that will be passed down through generations. The purpose is not to rely on existing origins and heritages but to try to stimulate new ones in order to create objects that will last.
