24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Emmanuelle Jollain and "Manuberlue" (France)

In Emmanuelle Jollain's workshop, it is like in the French song, "you can find everything". No salad, no soap, but playmobils, beer caps, ties and tons of buttons ... all turned and passed either under the hammer or a clip or the sewing machine ... A "recycling" design full of fun, colors and always surprising.

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Emanuelle is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".

24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Théophile Caille and "Théo et le Verre" (France)

Once Theophile Caille works, glass becomes instantly liquid or steel, the red colour we perceived some minutes before is now bright white, water is worthy of acid and a shiny jewel takes place of a dark drop. Perhaps the glasses Theo wears to support the look of the melt allow him to control this changing world, like a Prometheus in the Modern Times...

24-05-2014 : A designer at work ; Gaëlle Chauveaux and "Graine de Carrosse" (France)

"And what do you do exactly?" "I'm a word seller".

Coming from the mouth of a great dreaming person, everything was said. But I wanted to see in order to know more.

In her letterpress workshop of three square meters, with an extraordinary passion and a permanent enthusiasm, Gaëlle creates words, phrases and things that makes your heart beat. This energetic and young woman admits she is never tired of magic & happiness the words can bring, if they are well used. She says that people we love deserve more than a "pré-pensé" gift. That was the reason why she created her own words store.
