Studio Idaë


Urban design


Feuillade is a project designed for the residents of 211 rue Championnet in Paris 18th, Paris Habitat site.

A ‘feuillade’ in french is a shelter formed by the foliage of trees.

This island of coolness is based on the principle of stakes, supports for vegetation, which will guide the growth of plants (Trachelospernum jasminoides). It is composed of four interventions:
– fog arches

– shades and benches
– vegetation stakes
– a thermal coating

The fog arches use high-pressure misting to cool down when the temperature exceeds 28°C. A push button allows the user to activate the misting.

The shades and benches provide a break space for the inhabitants. This space includes a book box designed by the inhabitants.

The asphalt pathway, which is highly exposed to sunlight and contributes to the heat island phenomenon, was covered with a thermal coating to limit heat absorption in summer.

Awarded FAIRE DESIGN 2018 and MONDES NOUVEAUX in 2021, Isabelle Daëron has founded Studio Idaë whose activity operates in three main areas of activity acting in synergy: urban design, set design, and research.

Pauline Avrillon, product designer graduated from École Boulle joined the studio in 2017, and works on urban design projects. Jonathan Roditi, product designer graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015 and ENSAD in 2021, and Angèle Fourteau, product designer graduated from ECAL in 2017 joined the team in 2023.

Studio Idaë cooperates with various public institutions (Cité du design de Saint-Étienne, CAUE Rhône-Alpes, Domaine de Chamarande, Centre Pompidou, etc.), private companies (Hermès, Maif, Leroy Merlin, Balsan, Laorus, Suez environnement, etc.), municipalities (City of Paris, City of Rennes, City of Saint-Galmier, City of Le Rheu, etc.) as well as manufacturers (Cristal Saint-Louis).
