Fragile looks into the world of shipping: a flexible packaging system as a reusable companion to the packaged object rather than a disposable skin. An inquiry into the materiality and the typologies of transport packaging for valuable goods.

My work usually reviews object typologies. Challenging the material, the form, the use and eventually how industrial objects are made to find more efficient and intelligent ways to do them. I would like to think I do projects rather than objects, as industrial objects live in a certain environment, used by a certain people, have a certain cycle, deliver a certain service. Each object is a system.
