Recently graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven with his two projects From Ash and Minerae, Thomas is currently enrolled in the Master Program in ECAL.
After a year working among the studio Formafantasma and Mathieu Lehanneur, his work has been refined in a simple sentence: Finding new physical interactions with our surrounding.
His practice is based on three main axes:
In front of a new product I often become a child again: trying to understand fully this discovery.
By merging different aesthetics and environments together, the aim is to create surprise and trigger interest without removing the functional aspect. Thus focusing on the pleasure of use.
Materials and technics can often be optimized for the desired product.
The fresh and naive eye of a designer often lead to new ideas on the manufacturing technic, but it is through a rigorous and hands-on development that materials reach their real potentials and where they make sense to be applied.
More than aesthetics, Design is today a catalyzer linking several fields together for the benefice of a project. Thus researching for different expertise is the core of the product development process.
This gathering of data aim for a precise reconstruction of a context to create an adapted products.
