Bec

The process for the creation of the purse inspired the form.  The vegetable tanned leather (undyed) was moulded over a rounded woodblock, as the handle pressed and locked the leather to frame the body of the purse. 

Nil

This velvet couch was inspired by late 70’s eccentric curvaceous furniture. The goal was to create a form that was uncommon to conventional seating to challenge and enhance the way we engage with the object.

This project aims to rediscover the curiosity and playfulness of mundane, organic, and abstract forms. This allows children to participate in unstructured play, letting them use their creativity to associate their own thoughts and usage to their creations. 

Made of Maple, it can be painted on by children.

Gems 

Parting from your stuff can be difficult, especially if it reminds you of a memory or period of your life.

Being able to gift something meaningful to someone who wants it and will care for it, is reassuring. The app Gems was originally designed to help the elder part with their material past. However, the app is can also be used to alleviate the separation anxiety of a person and their possessions during transitional periods of life by creating a community of caring receivers. 

Frost

Inspired by a twig caught in a stream, this bathroom shelf has a rotating teak towel holder caught in a still current of resin. As the bathroom gets steamy, the resin defrosts and becomes clear.

Noyau

It's nice to have control, but it's also nice to design with the element of surprise.

I was inspired by microscopic cell formations, as I was using what had once been the living cells of a cuttlefish to carve the ring. Paying homage to the ancient jewelry-making technique, I let the imprecision of the material and the molten bronze carve its paths into the form, creating rounded edges and organic forms.
