'I am a collector of stories. Passionate about art, I collect objets trouvés, that are then often re-explored and utilized to create installations to inspire projects. I have a strong interest in aesthetics, historic architectural details, shapes, colours and material textures. My focus goes to the emotional feeling that beautiful design can generate, when entering a room, or an open space. The very same feeling when holding an old object in your hand embraced with stories, as when reading a beautiful poem. These moments are key vehicles when I design. They guide me to understand the complexity of design and communication.'


PHILOSOPHY

'My design philosophy is build on a conceptual approach inspired by the unexpected, and with a strong aesthetic and analytical eye, generating results that are unique of their kind. Brand strategy, storytelling, aesthetics, signature and material detail, are key elements in my designs.'
