Roxane Lahidji is a social designer specialized in ecological material developments and applications. Her research focuses on achieving luxurious looking objects and surfaces from low costs and raw resources.

 

In this sense, she seeks to re-define the meaning of the objects she makes by balancing local and renewable resources, environmentally friendly production processes, and essential human values. With the deep concern of conciliating production and sustainability, her design uses disregarded or cheap materials brought to a new life, while twisting low tech methods and traditional crafts techniques She describes her practice as an alchemical journey by developing her own transforming and molding methods.

 

Roxane Lahidji was born in Paris in 1992 and grew up in the french capital before studying illustration and product design in Strasbourg (HEAR). 

After graduating from the Social Design department of Design Academy Eindhoven in 2017, Roxane Lahidji developed her project ‘’Marbled salts’’ and was awarded among the 100 best French international designers by FD100 price of the VIA and won the 2019 Bolia award.
