Margot develops her practice centered on research and experimentation of materials by exploring different arts and crafts. Her passion for experimenting materials and the balance between theory and practice came into existence when she completed her training as a designer at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Afterwards, she continued her learning with ceramists from Jingdezhen, weavers from Oaxaca and architects from New York.
Arsène first honed his passion for typography at La Cambre before turning to graphic design at the ERG Brussels. This contemporary school allowed him to develop a sharp eye on the visual arts.
