My name is Marie-Marie Dutour and I am a product and research designer located in Paris. I completed a master’s degree from l’École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, majoring in object design.
Environmental issues are at the heart of my research.
I was the winner of the 3rd prize in the "Aluminum for eco-design" competition in 2015.
Then in 2016, I wrote a thesis about the power of fiction in the environmental challenges of today.
Based on this writing, my graduation project is the result of a year long exploration with the help of physicians and users, on new ways of heating. I aimed to obtain a more accurate perception of heat with less energy consumption.
This project, called “Expressions Thermiques” was since then showcased in several exhibitions and was finalist in the international contest of the Design Parade de Hyères 2019 and exhibited at the Villa Noailles.
Today, I wish to create bridges between the field of the designer and areas such as science, social sciences and ecology.
a better future
