Most people spend almost 90% of their time inside, lit by artificial lights which, unlike the sun, do not change colour or light intensity during the day, disturbing their circadian rhythm. Helia follows the user throughout the day - from waking up to falling asleep - by varying its light intensity and colour. It improves the user’s concentration, productivity, quality of sleep, mood... Helia’s modular head enables it to create either a direct light beam or an ambient lamp. This project has been carried out in collaboration with the EPFL+ECAL lab.

“A beautiful, simple, conical body that can be changed from a source of ambient light to a spotlight for reading with a simple, intuitive gesture. A minimalist lamp providing different lighting effects,” says Marcel Besau, explaining the decision to award first prize to Helia.
A large number of scientific studies show the positive impact of physical activity, increasing oxygen to the body and therefore improving concentration and productivity. It also reduces back pain.
Nowadays, as home office working is becoming more and more common, many people suffer from sitting all day long in front of their computer.
Silhouette adapts to the user’s movements; the chair’s back and seat follow the user’s movements and makes the chair more comfortable while reducing pains of the worker and increasing his concentration.

People often leave their clothes on their bed or on the back of a chair. Hanger Pole is a coat peg or rather a « clothes rack » that enables the user to easily find their clothes while keeping them nice and tidy.
A simple pole, this convenient clothes stand can be fitted with just about any hook or hanger.
During the Design Week in Milan (2021), I had the opportunity to present Hanger Pole, a project mandated by MUJI and developed during my studies at the ECAL.
An important part of MUJI’s product development is based on detailed photographic studies of people’s homes. We were therefore asked to follow the same design process by documenting the spontaneous state of our home and other people’s surroundings to reveal the way they interact with products and identify with objects that are put to use. It became a direct inspiration for our design.
Bill is inspired by the lights of the 70’s.
It is entirely made of ceramic. Its sober design allows the user to place Bill in any type of environment. Its head is easy to rotate and enables the creation of both indirect ambient and a direct light beam. I chose colourful fabric electric cable as this is an integral part of the light.
It is available in a variety of colours.
"I have dual nationality (French and British) and graduated with a bachelor degree in product and industrial design from ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne, Switzerland) in 2021.
I am particularly interested in sectors that make sense in today’s world, that have a positive impact on society, the environnement or health."
