Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Occupation: Designer and artist.
Studio location: Paris.
Describe what you make: I create functional sculptural works.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: My most recent series, Remediated, is a work in response to the philosophical content of German professor Byung-Cheol Han. It reflects the information of the work made of stone.
Describe the problem your work solves: I want my work to be a sculpture itself, not a sculptural piece of furniture.
Describe the project you are working on now: Following stonework, I’m in the process of working with wood and glass ceramics. We’re studying the physical properties of various materials.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: So far, I have mainly shown furniture-type works, but I plan to introduce non-functional pieces soon. I’m also working on a fountain and swimming pool architecture.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: I always listen to music. Classical music calms me down in the morning. When I’m making things, electronic music gives me energy.
What you do when you’re not working: I try to play tennis and do fitness exercises as much as possible, since I sit in a chair a lot of the time. I think physical strength is important. I also like looking at exhibitions and going on walks.
Sources of creative envy: Richard Serra. The scale of his work and methodology have had a great influence on art and architecture.
