is a french designer based in Belgium. She graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, NL. Her practice is based on empirical and empathic research and often results in creating tools, methods or experiences, rather than ready-made solutions. In her work, she uses hacks and subversion in an attempt to shift our relationship with technology.

She also wonders what design can do to challenge our beliefs & habits in a finite, ecologically threatened world. She prefers to work with open-source resources, re-purposed materials, energy-aware approaches and DIY techniques. Previous projects take the form of websites, objects, instruments, publications & installations among others. She works as a designer with LOW←TECH MAGAZINE. Previously, she collaborated with Écume Studio (Nov 2022) and Onomatopee (May 2021).


Also, she develops and designs websites on request, with an attention for their energy consumption. She is open for collaborations and job opportunities. CV on request.

From 12-15 of October, Low-tech Magazine was invited by the Huis van de Toekomst (a Rotterdam-based neighborhood project focused on human power) to build a bike generator as part of their energy system. We ran an (open) workshop where participants helped us build the bike and hack DC appliances to be pedal powered. Low-tech Magazine's events, where I sometimes take part, can be found on their events page.

This website is designed to minimize energy use, based on some of the principles outlined by Low-Tech Magazine’s article “How to Build a Low-Tech Website?”. All images are compressed: please get in touch to obtain licensed high quality copies.
It's a work in progress and will be be updated at irregular times. It is designed, developed and maintained by Marie Verdeil, using 11ty.
