User Interface for Samsung SERIF TV. Info
In close collaboration with Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Gaël Hugo we developped the graphic part of the user interface for SERIF TV, that we nicknamed the “curtain mode”: Like pulling a curtain over the screen, the user interface applies a filter over the content giving an abstract impression of what is going on behind. When the “curtain mode” is active, viewers can access simple services such as a clock, Bluetooth speakers, apps and their photo gallery.

Archive website for Les Urbaines. Info

To contrast the strong identity developed each year, the Archives website has been developed as a more neutral and quiet object, that will accompany the changing identities along the years to come.

Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art, 1991—1996. Info
In 2016 the Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art will celebrate its 25th year. Students of the Master of Art Direction were invited to participate in the first part of the Nestlé Jubilee Project, for which the brief was to—through photography—re-imagine past projects supported by the foundation. My proposal for the design of the book was chosen and realized.
