«I've always been drawn to design products that lies in between the sculptural and the functional, where I want to design products that are visually captivating from every angle, where each perspective unveils something new and exciting. A product that never bores you. Like a piece of art that not only adds aesthetic pleasure and experiences to home, but also serves a practical purpose. Functional art. By crafting sculptural products with real materials that appeal as much to our heart and emotions, as to our brain, I believe we can create designs that stand the test of time and become cherished fixtures for the future»
