Thomas Vailly is focusing on materials, processes and systems in product design. His mechanical enginer diploma at University of Technology of Compiègne triggered a fascination for processes and transformation of matter. This concern was combined to a reflexion on system of production and consumption whilst following the Masters programme at the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work explores themes of industrial production, mass consumption and production, commodification and transformation of substances.
Thomas Vailly is the co-curator of C-Fabriek (DDW12, Eindhoven), a design exhibition focused on new design processes and low tech production technic. In 2013, together with Ohaly and Fiebig, he won the Frame Moooi. Interior design award.
