05 — LA DIMENSION CACHÉE DE L'OBJET

The starting point of the project was a specific interest in an everyday object — originally designed to be functional — elevated to the status of collection/art object : the glass. The project is developed by using a database composed with an images corpus of blown glasses collected from diverse museums collections. The book presents a classification of these glasses confronting their functional dimension (comfort while drinking, comfort in hand, liquid capacity…) and their esthetic dimension (shape, fanciness, ornementation, illustration, message…) while using their basic typologies (provenance, period, localisation, dimensions…) to illustrate « the hidden nature of the object » (La dimension cachée de l’objet), in other words : its fetishizing.

27 × 36 cm, 156 pages. Fonts in use : Wremena Light & Regular.

03 — HAKAMA

When I started the project I was interested in font classifications and specifically in hybrid font. The first step was to juxtapose paths from two fonts which already existed and did’t share the same font category to draw a new path. From this first research, I identified the main principles which made me think of a ribbon. The following step was guided by the art of folding, and more specifically the Hakama's measurements guide which is Japanese samouraï’s large pleated pants. So, from there, the font Hakama get its inspiration from the conception of the traditional hakama : extended, thin, with several foldings which do its particularity.

Hakama is free, OpenSource & distributed on demand (and still under construction).

02 — ECOCORE

Speculative project which takes its beginning in plastic overconsumption in the food industry. Inspired by the commercial codes and conservation techniques, Ecocore is a company which sells plastic as a real food, packaged under-vacuumed itself in plastic. The project diverts the primary function of plastic by making the container the content to be preserved.

So, Ecocore is an online modern-day shop, offering essential products to help keeping our planet clean and stop eating meat. The mission is to propose widely accessible, well-made and durable products made to be used for everyday, and for a long time. Sustainable has been a primary consideration in developing Ecocore and naturally incorporated in all processes, from the choice of suppliers to material. That is why we invest time in research to offer you products with the longest life. The company works hardly to build up the future.
