Ligne 9 is a new lighter for the ST Dupont Company. It has been designed for men & women and right or left-handed. The complexe mechanism inside give the user a simple use : slide the lighter head to light up the flame. Slide again to turn it off. Wooden models and 3D printings helped me to choose the final product.
Supervised by the HD designers, I took advantage of my semester at the Milwaukee Institute of art & Design (USA, WI) to follow the PowerSports class and participate to this Project. I finally received the 3rd place for my Week/WeekEnd Motorcycle concept, as sportive as discrete. To develop the EXPLORER motorcycle, I produced tons of sketches, then made a Tape drawing to finally build a 1/3 scale Clay model with wooden pieces for the mechanisms. This project has been an incredible opportunity to improve my ideation and the way I imagine the product. By the way, a real HD motorcycle was exposed in the 4th floor class. "There is no glory in practice but without practice there is no glory" Unknown.
During my research and interview, people sometimes told me "I would like to have a motorcycle that best fits to the week and week end use, because, I need to pack more stuffs at the back of my HD during week ends."
Because the project was mostly oriented aesthetics, I made trends boards to get inspired and to produce sketches.
Ideation was the most important word in this project. Produce faster, produce better!
Here are some quick sketches about the general motorcycle shapes, fairings and gas tanks.
After a hundred pages sketches, I highlighted
MILNEO was born from the desire to create a modular mini pool SPA for house or hotel where people want to create their own space. This model is distinguished by a wooden top surface to make it pleasant and leather head rests for the confort. The minimalist lines produce a modern and attractive SPA which fits perfectly in any environment (indoor or outdoor). Moreover, MILNEO can be connected to your smartphone or tablet, so yo can manage it from you office, before to go back home and the application will give you in return some feedbacks... Several mockups helped me to figure out which structure offered the best modular seats. The MILNEO application lets you manage # the SPA temperature # the quantity of water # the heating time (from your office, until you come back home...) & gives you feedbacks on # the water quality # the predefined programs for each bracelet # the technical maintenance
SKYDESK is a wooden corner desk which has the particularity to be unfoldable. The allowed work place is multiplied by 3 when unfolded. There is enough place to store a laptop inside. The drawer has to be pulled to support the unfolded table and the 3 shelves are large enough to support books, on hand ! The whole structure is fixed to the wall so the seat can be stored below.
TWIST is a streetlight range created during my internship at TMC innovation an urban manufacturer. The inspiration comes from a twist movement and origami. TWIST is now presented in the 2014 catalogue of the company and will be soon available in the streets. 2 other ranges are currently prototyping.
Creation and conception of 10 Trophies for the 2013 edition of the festival “Métiers à l’affiche” (Trade show) organized every years in Nantes.
The green color was intended by the organizers of the festival because Nantes was elected the european green capital in 2013.
We proposed the emerald green because it is the color of the year 2013.
3 days Workshop with Google USA
MORE SOON partnership with the French post to provide them a new service.
During a 3 days workshop in partnership with Stereolux Art & Tech Lab, I worked on a connected object and tangible data visualization. The first day we had to develop three concepts thanks to roughs and technical boards. One of our concept was to display the price of Bitcoin. This currency is conducive to good tangible visualization because of its high volatility which quickly gives large variations in its value.
Using a translucent tube and a volume of water, the idea was here to show the value of the Bitcoin exchange rate to the euro. The value is readable with the height of the water in the tube. Also, the water is bubbling when there is strong variations. We used an Arduino, a Raspberry Pi and Node.js to made this project. You can watch the video here.

SPARE TIME PHOTOGRAPHY + DRAWINGS
To travel is amazing and photography is a good tool to capture an instant and the atmosphere, but I like to draw what I see and what I feel when I'm visiting something new. I thus stay few hours in front of a building, a landscape, or inside a library and begin to draw, which is also a good way to meet people !
