is a french designer based in Belgium. Since graduating from the Design Academy of Eindhoven (NL, 2022), she uses design to explain and challenge how we perceive, build and use technology. This practice is based on empirical (DIY) and empathic research, often resulting in creating tools, methods or experiences, rather than ready-made solutions.

Low-tech Magazine

Since 2021, she works at LOW←TECH MAGAZINE. She is responsible for the visual direction of the magazine, producing photos and illustrations, graphic design and maintaining the solar-powered website. Closely collaborating with Kris de Decker, she also builds low-tech prototypes, works on the manuals and co-hosts workshops.


As a freelancer, she builds custom minimal websites with an attention to their energy use. Other projects take the form of publications, objects, guides and installations. She has worked with design studios (Hella Jongerius, Ecume Studio) and took part in various exhibitions and events across Europe (Dutch Design Week, FabLab Barcelona, Fiber Festival).
