1 June, 14:00

Marine Rouit-Leduc is a Paris based designer who stands out for her hybrid background, combining digital, object and fine art design. Her work and research focus both on the sensitive, emotional dimension of the digital and on the colors of light, for which she attempts to establish new nomenclatures. Her aim is a hybrid aesthetic that unfolds in both physical and digital spaces within meaningful experiences. From object to screen, she uses the subtle grammar of natural interactions to reconcile creation, industry and new technologies. With over 15 years’ experience in design and innovation, she heads Meaningful, an internationally recognized and award-winning design studio. In 2023, she presented her first major solo exhibition, Objets Polychromes – Conversation with Villa Savoye, as part of the French art program Mondes Nouveaux. In 2024 during the Miano Design week, she presented The Light Library, A new grammar for colored light, a manifesto exhibition that showcases the interactions of color with objects and the environment. She regularly teaches and gives workshops and lectures on creation at several prestigious institutions: Beaux-Arts de Paris, ENSCI-les Ateliers (Paris), Yale University (USA).

The colors of light

Numerous designers, architects and artists have explored the interactions of color with our environment, and developed rich and singular palettes. However, these often treat color as a “material”, through flat areas of paint, colored objects or textiles. How could we extend this reflection to objects that produce “light” color, and propose new subjective and sensitive associations taking advantage of techniques for producing colored light? During this conference, Marine will present 2 years of research and experimentation she has carried out as part of the Agora grant on the colors of light, and will present a series of projects developed in the fields of object design, visual arts and digital art.
