After 20 years working in investment banking and private equity, Philippe Nacson (TRIUM '12) decided it was time to tread a new path and pursue his creative passion for design.
Being able to create emotions and make people think, whether through my designs or via LOST ANDROIDS, from different generations or cultures is the best reward for me.
The idea for LOST ANDROIDS originated from Philippe’s encounter with an Otonaroid Android in Miraikan, the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo. As Philippe describes:
“I felt a simultaneous mix of fear, attraction and peacefulness. I instantly thought I needed to translate this experience somehow into something tangible, into something that would change our negative perception of AI in general into something positive.”
Philippe Nacson, a TRIUM 2012 graduate, is currently the Designer and Founder of LOST ANDROIDS.
