MA work


The exhibited installation, which is composed of two publications presented on a bench, is the result of a research on independent learning methods. 

The first publication is an archive of a self organised learning experiment which took place in RCA in January 2016. Questioning traditional education system and gathering the different workshop briefs which took place during the experience, it acts as a critical tools for future students. 

The second publication narrates the story of a intuitive furniture making workshop, which took place outside of the RCA. Edited as a chronological journal, the book aims to exact from the experiment, a design method based on intuitivity as well as a decision-making process.

The bench, which acts as a plinth for the book but also a reading structure, is the result of the workshop itself and an invitation to the visitor to sit down, reflect and discuss alternative ways of learning and the social aspect of design and making.

    My studio work consists mostly of printed matters with a special interest in editorial design, visual identity and exhibition design.
