Object manifest, "COLONNE" is a stool or a side table, its material is a 100% recycled foam (very robust, shockproof, durable and water-proof). 
Perhaps, one of the reasons why today I am an artist ‘making unique pieces’, after my degree in product design at Ensad Paris, is that I am concerned about environmental issues. I studied different recycling processes closely. I experimented with these approaches, then oriented on digital, it gradually led me to data recycling, where "This cloud is not devoid of impacts on the environment" *recalls Greenpeace*. Our future must be built in a circular economy, respectful of the environment, it is the simple message that I wish to transmit with this publishing project that I develop since several years. 

* See the Greenpeace article : "Environmental impact of the digital: it is time to renew the Internet"
