TECH ART OF LIVING OBSERVATORY
TO EXPLORE, CREATE AND INSPIRE
Loève Saint-Ourens created the Lab to:
- explore new ways to forecast, create and generate added value for the lifestyle of the future
- develop her vision of the future for the technological environment
In the fast-changing digital environment, our living conditions are evolving drastically. Most of this technological progress tries to leverage our performances by increasing our physical potential by managing it (quantified self), upgrading the service suite of our work and personal environments and optimizing our travel modes. Massive data collection tracks our lives, propelling us to obtain ultra-performance as a permanent challenge. Spurred by accelerating technological progress, human performance expectations are continually elevated leading to the eventual expansion of our brain capabilities with artificial intelligence and potentially resulting in a trans-humanism outcome.
This is far from an alarmist speech. Since no one can ignore the technological progress, it is now time to define a new way of life in the post-digital era that is in line with what we are ... deeply human.
SPECULATIVE DESIGN &
Inspired by critical design/design fiction, Loève develops disruptive products that challenge preconceptions and expectations thereby provoking new ways of thinking that impact use, environment and consumption. She engages the innovators of tomorrow as a visiting professor for Master cycle CELSA-Sorbonne, teaching Introduction to Disruptive Thinking & innovation methods.

TECHNOLOGICAL ART OF LIVING
An independent and futurist think tank that connects researchers, thinkers, and practitioners from diverse backgrounds: consulting, luxury, fashion, entertainment, well-being, advertising…It is our responsibility to be active partners in constructing the world of tomorrow. A world where technology should be, benevolent, manageable, and responsive to our emotional and sensitive needs…
This Think Tank is food for thoughts about a more human- friendly technology developed with consciousness in adequacy with human senses. A necessary piece of thought that can prepare us and our children for our evolutionary future.
Two meetings per year: lecture & discussion
