A few words on me:

I earned my degree in industrial design at ECAL (Swiss art school ) in 1998. I worked at Rolex and the atelier oï later, in 2000, i started my own business in the high tech industry while working with drones. ​After 13 years of work, i finally sold my company in order to focus on art. I conceptualised and created the art installation "bulles d'enfance" for the public school in En Bresse with Valérie Jaquemet. Our work "kosmosphaera" is now part of the MUDAC museum exhibition. see some pics below

Risks and challenges

​Kaïros is my first crowdfunded project. With 15 years experience in manufacturing things, i personally take great care of all production aspects, finishing and assembling everything myself.
Production requires a lot of expansive step, milling and machining, wire cutting, stamping, bending, drilling, threading. Then finish work is quite long (patina takes up to 3 weeks! )

The big work has been done, i spend more than four thousand dollars on making prototypes, finding the best way to produce my Kaïros.

I'm terribly exigent with quality, i know that the price of Kaïros is quite high and the future Kaïros owner will get perfection that will last for ever!

So be sure that the Swiss quality is here, no compromise.
And It will be delivered on time.
