I am a Project Manager with a background in digital fabrication and design research. I have spent the past three years travelling and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams on projects related to interaction design, hardware and education.
Kutì Kutì est un jeu d’assemblage lumineux et interactif. Par le montage de volumes abstraits et de circuits électroniques simples, les enfants construisent les blocs du jeu Kutì Kutì. Une fois les volumes montés, la réflexion laisse place à l’imagination. Les enfants assemblent et créent des animaux, et les modules passent de l’inanimé à l’animé ! Projet en cours de développement, la suite prochainement.
How does it work? - Create a team of 2 to 4 players, - Place the steel marble at the starting point of the maze, - Swing the table in order to bring the marble to the center.
The kids need to communicate and trust each other in order to succeed.
A lighting path reinforces the interaction. LEDs and sensors are spread all over the labyrinth. A red light moves over the maze. If the marble rolls on the red light, the LEDs makes a special animation and switch off: GAME OVER.

"We're a team of six classmates from Houghton Valley School, Wellington New Zealand. We love playing, reading and sports. We especially like making things. We believe that every single kid feels the same so we decided to make this website.
During a period of 6 months we met up once a week with Anna and made cool stuff all together. We had access to Fab Lab Wgtn, so we discovered a few of their machines and the fabulous team there!
We know how lucky we were to be part of this project. That is why we wanted to share everything we did and learnt with you on our website. How exciting is that?? You'll also realize that anyone can be a maker. If you want to learn more about digital fabrication, electronics and programming watch our tutorials! We did our best to share our new knowledge online."
The Scribbly-Bear is a Kiwi drawbot inspired by the AS220 Drawbot Tutorial. We wanted to make a drawbot that was adaptable for many different surfaces - from windows to ceiling rafters to whiteboards to the sides of buildings. The Scribbly-Bear was designed with adaptability in mind.
Watch the videos to see Scribbly-bear in action!

How could we support the user in decreasing and stabilizing her/his energetic consumption with an healthy and environmental consciousness ?
When we joined Ubiant, a french start-up specialized in smart home and green technologies, Clémence Douard and I were put in charge of developing a solution based on artificial intelligence (HEMIS) that will reduce the energy consumption at home while maximizing the well-being of their occupants.
Exploration The topics explored: Smart Home - Environmental context - Biomimicry - Home Automation - Sociology - History - Science - Art - Design - Law
The investigations 14 people interviewed and observed Between 24 and 87 years old - All types of marital and professional situations - Different accommodations The objectives : Look at what people do (not just what people say they do) - Make the latent need emerge
Creativity process Sharing - What statement have been made during each of our survey ? Brainstorming - For each work thematic chosen after our investigations we asked the question : "How can we answer to this statement ?" Baby concepts creation - Three leads are selected and modeled.
The mockups One concept has been led until the prototyping stage : the " chameleon cube " or HEMIS. Its design is suitable for any interior. Prototypes and tests : product functionality - optimize interface in terms of ergonomics and ease of use.

Influence and inspire young women to jump into the tech world.
30 is the percentage of women in the major tech companies. This number is remarkably consistent. When you breakdown the numbers, you realize that fewer women are in the position to influence their company.
Between us believes that women need to stop underestimating their capabilities and start standing for their dreams.
The tech industry can seem threatening from the outside. Between us community decided to share their insightful stories so you can start believing in yours.

Arrived in may 2013 in the Philippines, we were 5 french IDEA program students involved in an adventure with the NGO Gawad Kalinga. We spent three months with GK Fiat villagers, a small village very close to a city named Silay, known as the small " Paris " of the Philippines.
Our mission was to conceptualise and build a coffee shop . As Silay is a former French colony, we developed a concept that promoted its French and Philippines local heritage and know-how. This is how the local café "Chez Tita " was built.
Fund raising 2000€ were raised, partly on the crowd-funding platform Ulule.
Culture and traditions discovery The people, their traditions, their way of life and their local know-how
Creative sessions How could we highlight the local know-how (cooking and woodwork) ? Brainstormings with some villagers and Gawad Kalinga management team.
Villagers management Construction Work & Gardening - Recipes creation & Villagers training (Cooking & customer services)
Kids' activities aside the Coffee Shop Aside from the Coffee Shop, french lessons, sport activities, creativity activities & Lipdub creation were organised.

A luminous cushion that children sleep with at night.
Lül is designed for kids between 0 to 6 years old. The first time they sleep alone, the first days at school or even different outdoors events are difficult steps to overcome for many children. These sudden changes can often lead to different feelings such as being nervous or anxious.
Once activated, the sleep mode reduces slowly the light's brightness until the child falls asleep. The older children, who might wake up during the night to go the bathroom, just have to shake Lül to turn the light on. Refined and customisable, this little cushion enables the kid to a fast appropriation. The design has been studied to make it handy and easy to pick up. This cushion is made from organic cotton, contains safe electric components for the child.

The Challenge is a sporting event organised by students from the school Centrale de Lyon. For more than 30 years, it assembles more than 3000 students from engineering schools.
In order to sublimate the final ceremony, the students of the IDEA Program and the engineering school Centrale de Lyon shared their different skills to realise the Challenge's podium 2013.
The conception 1. Design explorations: researches, moodboards, brainstormings 2. Facilities and financial constraints 3. Focus on one design to develop 4. Event's logo enhancement
The delivering Wooden structures assembled together Red neon lights placed underneath the façade 3 large white Lion's claws lasercut in thick acrylic

Three street-lamps changed into 3 massive jellyfishes, each of them was a creature suggesting the woman.
During the Festival of Lights 2012 in Lyon, we were 4 IDEA Program students working on this lighting and interactive installation.
This project found inspiration in the mesmerizing creature that is the jellyfish.
Leucosie: warm and protective, she is the woman who gives life Agalopé: natural and attractive woman, her charming melody will make you fell for her. Ligie: sweet and reassuring at the first sight, she actually is a sexy and dangerous woman.
