The gesture of playing with the intensity of natural light thanks to a roller blind is rooted in human behaviour. The Eos lamp finds inspiration in this observation to offer a height-adjustable lighting system whose source can be either direct or indirect. This modularity generates a spectrum of atmospheres, ranging from a global light to the intimacy of a light zone defining a personal space.Chiaroscuro inspiration: The Supper at Emmaus, Caravaggio, 1606

Shadow of dronesExhibit design
Exhibit design developed for Infinity Room 2, celebrating the 50 years of EPFL at the EPFL ArtLab. This double-sided scenography uses video projected animations to both highlight/cast shadows of the different drones and show information about each of them. The exhibition plan consists of 5 translucent screens suspended left and right, inviting the viewer to navigate through the long corridor. As they enter the exhibition, visitors first discover the two-dimensional shadows projected by the drones, giving a deceiving impression of projected video animations. Yet some details, such as inverted texts invite them to go behind the scenes and discover the materiality of the drones.In collaboration with friends of INT studio.Photo credits:INT StudioShadows of DronesInfinity Room 213.09.2019 - 26.01.2020EPFL ArtLab© Leutenegger Photography

Ouverture is a compact proposition of exhibit design for a traveling exhibition about watch design. The modules and tables fold and stack easily for a fast assembly and disassembly and a convenient transport. The design offers two views on the content of the exhibition: The front side proposes a clean look on the content and acts as a teaser, while the back side contains all the information the visitor might want to know.In collaboration with friend Victor Jacquard.

The Click lock is your everyday padlock. Its slick code wheels are thought for a comfortable handling of the mechanism and its compact design allows it to fit discretely in your pocket or backpack, making it a handy companion.
This project was mentored by Swiss designer Michel Charlot in collaboration with fibre cement producer Eternit (brand: SwissPearl). The purpose was to design new shapes for outdoor furniture, taking into account structural constraints imposed by the moulding techniques of Eternit, and to train on producing high-quality cardboard mock-ups.Photo credits:Models & renderings: Gabriel FollonierTadao Ando's Casa Wabi: Ana Hop, integration by Gabriel Follonier

This project is the result of a joint effort with Dutch magazine MacGuffin. With its three hands of identical lengths placed at a different distance from a translucent glass disc, this clock investigates the relationship between a silhouette’s proximity to a blurred screen and its sharpness. The vividity of time fades away as the measuring units increase: seconds appear as sharp instants while hours are revealed as blurry moments, offering a visual representation of time.In collaboration with friends Victor Jacquard, Anna Piasek and Valentin Sieber.

Tab is a trio of geometry instruments made of aluminium consisting of a ruler, a set square and a protractor. A folded tab on all three items allows them to be stacked into a compact and handy set.
UFO is a pendant lamp whose height can be adjusted thanks to a counterweight and pulley system. Bringing the lamp up or down allows to generate different lighting ambiances in a given area, depending on people’s needs.
SwayInteractive sport installation
Sway is an audiovisual experience that invites the user to play with sound in space. Eight suspended speakers produce a sound that follows the user at 360°. Five soundtracks are mixed together in Ableton Live as the user moves on the platform, which is equipped with an accelerometer. The sound is then spatialised through eight channels, resulting in an immersive experience. Visuals are projected on the ground to guide the user as they pilot the sound.In collaboration with friends Valentin Sieber and Nathan Vogel.
The ShadeResearch for MacGuffin
Research around the theme of "The Shade": In a joint effort with Dutch magazine MacGuffin, we set out to investigate tangible and theoretical representations of the notion of shade. The resulting material served as a basis for applied projects, such as a colour chart obtained from flaking car hoods, a lamp that illuminates its own shadow or a wall clock using a translucent filter to reveal time.In collaboration with friends Victor Jacquard, Anna Piasek and Valentin Sieber.
