I’m a transdisciplinary artist working in Lausanne and Pompaples. I graduated in 2012 from the University of art and design Lausanne (Ecal), where I studied industrial design. After one year spent as a teacher assistant for the bachelor program at the school, I had the opportunity to join the lab of robotic systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) as a product designer. This immersion in the scientific world allows me to come up with new approaches and a strong will to connect more my design practice with ongoing innovative research. In 2016, I joined the Masterstudio at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Basel to have the possibility to implement my new projects. Nowadays, my practice focuses mainly on the new fascinating materials emerging in bio labs and in the reinterpretation of biological materials.
