Story

Born and raised in Brussels in a family of architects, graphic designers, photographers and conceptual art gallerist, Frédérique could not have grown in a better environment to become a designer.

After studying Interior Architecture & Design at the College of Advertising and Design in Brussels, she starts in 2013 to work with Nathalie Dewez (Belgian Designer of the Year 2011), specialized in lighting design and for Jean-François D’Or (Belgian Designer of the Year 2013), industrial designer.

In 2015, Frédérique starts her own projects and chooses to work porcelain with her own hands and creates the mood cups collection. In love with the material and curious to explore further its potential, she continues the next projects in porcelain as well. Although that specialization does not stop her from interest in other materials and wihtin the studio starts to grow a material library.

Very interested by any industrial or handicraft making process, she gives a great importance to dialogues for the varied collaborations, whether it is with the client or the manufacturer. Always curious to explore unknown grounds, she likes to search ‘out of the box’ and bring a concept or storytelling to her projects. and develops sensitive, well balanced, human products, which evolve in symbiosis with its environment.
