I come from France ( Nice, 1992 ), where I successively studied industrial design (La Martinière, Lyon) and fine arts -option product design (Esad, Reims). After that I moved to Amsterdam to follow a temporary master program (Materialisation in Art and Design) at the Sandberg Institute where I graduated in 2017. The Once Liquid Plastic, that I presented as my graduation project has been awarded by the RADO star prize 2017 and was exhibited at the Paris Design Week 2017. The project was also presented at IMM Cologne 2018, where it won the 3rd prize from the Pure Talent Contest. In March 2018 I opened my design studio at ISO Amsterdam. Since the exhibition FAR at the Milan Design week 2019 the Once liquid plastic collection is represented and available through Nilufar gallery
