          • Over the past 3 years I have been collaborating with Camille Walala and Julia Jomaa on a series of public spaces interventions, site specific installation and exhibitions in London and abroad. At the end of last year we have completed two large scale installations for London Design Festival London and NOW Gallery that have been the highlight of LDF 2017. Coming from an architectural background, my role oscillated between giving the spaces a form and maintaining them relevant to the context they are set in while keeping the artists visual aesthetics. Clients: Selfridges, London Design Week, British Land, NOW Gallery, Broadgate.
