L'amour Fou

Grand Blanc

Music video – Concept,
Production : Les Tribuns, for the french music band Grand Blanc.
August 2016, Paris


Music video that explores consequence as a result of action, expressed as codes transformed from quotidian scenes to material installations exposed during a Grand Blanc performance.
The scenes, and their manifestations in the dream-like world of the band’s theater, define the dichotic relationship between euphoria and damnation in maddening love. It doesn’t take a position, but rather maintains an ambivalence to it, leaving the question of its worthiness open to interpretation. The pacing of the film will follow a reverberation between these worlds, culminating with a story-long narrative arc.

Rihanna

Concept – Set design
August 2016 - Madison square garden, New York


We were consulted by Willo Perron & Associates on the scenic design of Rihanna's opening performance for the her MTV VMA Vanguard Award. The breathing installation mixes between opaque inflatables, melted plastic, and pepto pink, supporting Rihanna's medley of performances from her back catalogue.

COS

Concept – Design – Production for retail experience. Photo : Owen Richards / Video : Andrew Telling
March 2013, Milan


The installation was inspired from the theme of the COS collection «Modern Utility» dealing with simple, optimised forms created by modern technology. Driven by a focus on modularity, the overall concept is based on rapid building and disassembly, designed after the structural codes of the atomic form. This centrepiece, a 3D-printed constructing atom, can create an infinite number of geometric sculptures, offering a high degree of modularity and permutations
To enable rapid building, each piece, colour, and material corresponds to a useful and precise place. Colours were chosen to enhance the product’s visibility and presentation, to contrast with the selected space and construction system. Indeed, this building paradigm can create an endless stream of COS product displays. This pop-up concept, like the timeless white oxford shirt, has no lifespan, and can live in any shape, space, or scale.

Wasted Time Vol. 2

Personal Project

Photography – Design
February 2016, Paris


The second part of an ongoing studio project, this volume continues to explore the spontaneous experimentations developed in the original project. This initial chapter focuses on forces of equilibrium and how the materials’ individual specificities interact to construct an object : the flexibility of the grid, the curvature of the tube, and the weight of the materials used to find an improbable balance.

Snatch Magazine

Concept – Set Design – Photography for print editorial.
January 2015, Paris


Once again taking a conceptual approach to illustrate transhumanism (literally, an intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition through technology), we focused our approach on transforming a human protagonist through material and optical effects.
Using prisms and other experimental materials, we took an interpretive approach to the topics elicited in the magazine’s text, including cybernetics, digital identity, robotics, and other such far-flung technologies.

Ami BHV

Ami

Design – Concept – Production
September 2016, Paris - BHV Homme


We were commissioned by AMI Paris to design and produce their latest shop in the renovated le BHV Marais Homme. The base concept of the retail design was "a box within a box", a self-contained retail experience within the venerable department store. The intention was to offer a intimate, personal dressing room in a dense, populated setting, reverberating the language and visual universe of AMI whilst bringing about a new chapter in the brand’s retail presence.
