Area of Expertise :
Play, Industrial & Product Design, Toy Design, Post-Consumer Culture, Design Education
Rémi has provided creative talent to industries in the spheres of play and education since his graduation from Les Ateliers - ENSCI Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle in Paris where he received a Masters Degree in Industrial Design.
Having lived in Asia, Africa, America, and Europe, his exposures to diverse cultures and understanding of the representations of these cultures invigorate his designs and nurture his research perspectives. His work is anchored in his exploration of different notions of play and the conventions of interactivity, and he draws on the characteristics of both traditional and contemporary play objects to develop prospective children’s environments, educational kits and products.
Rémi also has a strong interest in issues of social accountability. He has explored extensively the union of design with social awareness and has worked collaboratively on projects with socially responsible businesses and organisations in Hong Kong, Paris and New York.
Rémi’s designs have received awards in competitions in Hong Kong and are part of the permanent collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Palais du Louvre, Paris. He has also received several awards for his teaching at PolyU.
