WEEK 01 | STATE OF THE ART,PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND DOCUMENTATION This week was about the documentation process and getting to know GitLab and Markdown. It was also about defining my final project (and inspirations) even if it can (and will probably) change throughout the coming weeks.


How to organize pictures in tables

I was interested in how I could organize pictures, if I could add like a system of grid. As I’m new to Markdown I looked into previous repos if they had these examples (Rabab Abdulla Qatar QBIC LAB 2019-2020 for instance). And realised that, most of the time, the grid with several pictures was actually downloaded as one picture. But then I found out that I can create a table with the pictures included ! Here is the code for a table with 4 pictures of bioplastics I made a year ago :

|![turquoise bioplastic](../images/week01/Histo-plastique01.jpg)|![orange bioplastic](../images/week01/Histo-plastique05.jpg)|  
|![blue bioplastic](../images/week01/Histo-plastique03.jpg) | ![pink bioplastic](../images/week01/Histo-plastique04.jpg)|

Which turns into :

turquoise bioplastic orange bioplastic
blue bioplastic pink bioplastic

Note to myself check the indents, you always forget them

How to add a gif

From video to gif : You can make your own gif on Then upload it on giphy Go find the embed code of the gif and add it in you page, it should look like that :

Modular Surfaces

modular lamps

  1. MARUJA Lamp, LZF : this lamp is proposed in kit form which is very interesting to me because it gives the user the sensation to be part of the fabrication process. In addition, it is easier to deliver because of its flatness.
  2. Eye of the Light lamp by Malgorzata Mozolewska, Sonia Szostak : a lamp made from the dovetailing of several metal pieces. The surface is created with only one shape. This kind of modular structures is quite intriguing and could help me work with hard materials. Alongside these modular structures, I like to work in 3D with origami. A great book I take inspiration from : Laurence King (ed.).(2011). Folding techniques for designers. Paul Jackson.

Organic Textures


  1. Glass windows of L'Abbaye de Conques by P. Soulages (detail), Office de tourisme Conques Marcillac: This stained glass is a bit different from the colourful ones we're used to. In opposition to traditional stained glasses which are mostly pictural, Soulages wanted to work on the quality of the glass more than on its layout. He managed to create a translucid/semi-opaque white glass with the help of Jean-Dominique Fleury (Atelier Fleury). The colours of the glass come from the light and change during the day. I like how it is connected to specific space and time only because of its matter and light interactions.
  2. Textile made of broken glass, from my samples : going from the particle to a whole surface, working with unregular glass tessels gives an organic look to this textile. It plays nicely with light because of the several facets of each glass tessel.

Light Reflections

Light reflections

  1. Light reflections, from my previous work
  2. Atman, © Catellani & Smith : This lamp is more about giving a specific mood to a room than about giving enough light. I really like when light reflections set up an atmosphere. There is magic in that. It's a bit like a fireplace : an object that gathers people around, an object which isn't limited to its physical presence but which becomes an entire virtual space through light reflections and shadows. It becomes a new place where stories are told. It can be magical, surprising, a place and time out of the world.

During the coming weeks, I'm planning on keeping in mind the following :

  • Kit form
  • Modular surfaces (one shape, several combinations)
  • Transparent or semi-opaque materials
  • Looking at how my work/creation plays with light
