Alumni from the Design Academy Eindhoven and the Master Program in ECAL in Lausanne, Thomas’s works aims for innovation through the design practice.
After working for a year among the design studios Formafantasma and Mathieu Lehanneur, he started defining his work in a simple sentence: Finding new physical interactions with our surrounding.
To do so, his process aims global understanding of a context through data gathering, research and various points of view.
His practice is based on three main axes:
By merging different aesthetics and environments together he aims are to create surprise and interest without removing the functional aspect, thus focusing on the pleasure of use.
It is through a rigorous hands-on development that materials reach their real potentials and find their right application, this is where real novelty appears.
Researching for different expertise is the core of his product development’s process, his work favor facts to assumptions. The design is not here the outer shell of the product but a whole where everything perfectly fit.
This gathering of data leads to a precise contextualization to create the adequate product.
