Florie believes in a collaborative approach with people all along the design process. This particularly includes creative and empathic research methods to gain first hand insights.
She has worked on projects aiming at finding solutions on specific issues through quick and intense collaborations: The Little Things (2013); Skopje inclusive design workshop (2012). She was also lucky to explore in depth, for several months, some wider or more complicated issues. This has been the case especially for the Healthy Pregnancy project in partnership with Clearblue at the Helen Hamlyn Centre.
This year (2013), she has been designing a smartphone app for a home-automation producer and providing Service Design solutions to a German company working for the elderly.
Florie is also passionate about craft making. With Plastic Gold, she has developed a technique to enable the Saharawi refugees to make high-end quality pieces of jewellery with the limited resources available in the refugee camps.
Florie has a background in Social Sciences (La Sorbonne, 2004) and Cabinet Making (Ecole Boulle, 2007) and holds a MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art, London (2010). After her graduation, she worked for two years as a Research Associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design in London.
