Designed for Droog, Saving Grace, is a serie of lamps built specially to be fitted with energy saving light bulbs. Made out of glass, the different shapes adapt to the most common light bulbs present on the market.It takes advantage of the different qualities of the lights possible such as indirect lights, direct lights and diffuse light due to the specific bulbs shapes.

Mapping is a collection of objects exploring the hydro-transfer printing technique. Five different pieces, each in their own ways exploring a particular reference to the industrial world. The contrast between the heavy look of the surface treatment and the actual lightness of the material is the particularity of this project.
The idea behind the product is to try to activate an unexpected sense in the objects, the taste.
