Before forming a concept, Carole wanders the space alone, feeling every possible mood that can be brought to life. From there, the concept starts to take shape, molded by light, raw material, modular design, and purpose – elements found in both nature and scenography.
Throughout the design process, our natural world informs, and transforms, the urban one. Nature is an integral part of every concept, not just an afterthought to aesthetic imperatives. It is the source of modular, minimal, and practical designs that have become Carole's signature. Raw material, in particular, is utilized as much as possible, reinforcing the connection with our natural surroundings and providing true pleasure in inhabiting urban spaces.
It is not only a conceptual anchor, but a therapeutic element, a source of life, and a way to create dynamism, flow, and volume as well. As with scenography, each interior is imagined as a set of theatrical moments defined through a delicate choreography of light, as well as raw material, technology, and the physical structure itself. The concept is brought to life using the reflection and refraction of light – moods are created using light, wellbeing is enhanced through light, pieces are aligned with light, volume is achieved using light, continuity is realized through light.
To ensure that each project is a composite of diverse yet connected visions and identities, Carole works on open and continuous partnership with its architects, light designers, engineers, contractors, and so on. In this way, she highlights and gives value to their work, products, and designs, and, above all, she nurtures a shared passion in the project that is key to bringing it to life.
