industrial designer, visual designer

I was born in 1979 in Paris.
After doing a first diploma in industrial design at the ENSAAMA (Olivier de Serres), I went to England where I did a Bachelor of Art with honors at the BIAD (Birmingham Institute of Art & Design) in 2002. During my student days I competed in a number of competitions and won several prizes. They include a nomination in the Jeunes flammes awards in 2001, two nominations in the RSA student design awards, an honourable mention in the Coram design award in 2002 and again in 2003, and a pre-selection in the CAUE competition in the Sarthe department, also in 2003.
After I got my diploma, I joined the Cent Degrès design office in Paris in 2004, working for luxury labels, cosmetics and perfumery. After gaining two years’ experience, I became a project head before leaving in 2006 to join the Outsign office. It was there that I began working in street furniture, and took part in the competition for designing ‘sanisettes’ (public toilets) for the City of Paris.
From 2005 to 2007 I showed pieces at the Milan furniture fair with "ONEOFF" and "OPOS", in stereolithography, glass and ceramic.
Since May 2006 I have been a freelance designer sharing my time between the Arik Lévy studio where I have worked on a great many projects, and my own creations. I had my first monograph show on the theme "Equilibre" in April 2011, and took part in a group exhibition entitled "Pygmalion" in September 2011, at the Galerie Gosserez in Paris.
