Studio With A View: the designers at FabLab.iMAL

Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence



Aerodyne and Before Aerodyne is a two-levels project that explores the potential of a rapid prototyping workshop to develop final products. Charlotte has decided to focus on the craft of making kites because that field requires a high level of accuracy, specific tooling and is mostly practiced by amateurs. By putting herself in the shoes of a novice, she simultaneously developed the skills to control the laser-cutting machine and acquired theoretical and empirical knowledge on how to build kites. This experience had two outcomes: firstly, a series of accessories and tools needed to make kites; secondly, the collection of kites itself.

About Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence

As a designer, she thinks, makes and produces objects.
