Bougie V

Creation of a candle with two flames sharing a single base.
This candle is based on an innovative and original shape
of V that permit to subvert the classic and straight candle
we know. The result is between a candlestick and the design
of an iconic candle that can be placed in any context and
create a unique atmosphere. By adding groove to the foot,
the candle get the possibility to be stick easily on bottle top.
A single rope is tied where the two candles join together.

Drelin is a hybrid of bicycle bell and brake, which lets you
sound the bell without taking your hand off the handlebar.
It is intended for more intuitive use, operating as an extension
of brake and hand.

I proposed a radical tool for gripping and shaping a sheet
of paper or flyer in order to cool oneself more elegantly
and lightly. This folding fan aims to be more personal and cross-
cultural, and operates as a sustainable tool because it is
made of aluminium profiles and exchangeable paper sheets.

Inspired by the soft, warm light filtered through the leaves
of bamboo forests, I transcribed it by a series of light.
With three different floor heights, the lamps are formed
by a simple connection between both bamboo and
aluminium profiles, pinching and shaping perforated-board
light diffusers, which gives to the light a subtle vibration.
My challenge was to exploit these different aspects into a series
of “perennial lights” and enjoy a new formal typology
inspired by nature.
