She comes from the Franche-Comté region where she grew up in an old monastery. She trained at Ecole Boulle in Paris, first at the goldsmith's, then she went from manufacturing to design, turning to furniture design. A double formation, like a balance, to find its point of balance. For her diploma in 2003, she takes a step aside, ventures successfully towards the implementation of paper, designer who gives himself the freedom of the artist.

His pieces are part of a desire for continuity where textures and forms, softness and femininity combine to the benefit of the same ambition, to provide evidence to the object. Seeking to put exchange at the center of her research, she creates an open space of reflection that allows her to approach projects with an ambition and a new poetics.

Yoonseux Architects
The agency is led by Franco-Korean architects Kyunglan Yoon and Philippe Seux. The association of two cultures occupies a decisive place in the definition of projects, in particular through the relationship between interior and exterior spaces, the capture of light, the sensitive and tactile dimension of different spaces, materials. As a touch device, the body is fully solicited in a sensory experience with different surface states of matter and light. The agency's research and activity is developing through national and international competitions, including major projects such as the 3 Satellite at Charles de Gaulle Airport and the Nice City Hall. Under the impulse of these projects, the architectural approach of the agency is synthesized around the themes of structure and light. Kyunglan Yoon and Philippe Seux attach great importance to the construction system, the compactness of the building, raw materials, but also and especially to the sensory experimentation of light.
