I am a Designer working and living in Asia.
My design interests ranging across various fields:
- Technology and how it needs to be made approachable.
- Furniture from a functional object to being a cultural statement.
- Space how it shapes behaviour.
- Experimental projects to push boundaries of manufacturing, new materials or exploring the junction between physical and digital.
I like to work on all scales: From mass production to smaller series and limited editions down to a single object.
We live in a complex and fast moving world.
The appreciation for the value of work, craftsmanship,
know-how and resources is fading..
The frontier between digital and physical is continuously blurring
while technology develops faster than human minds can follow.
As a product designer I believe that design can work as a filter,
language and tool to give orientation and understanding
to this fast technological development:
By translating technology into something recognisable and approachable. And only if the result actually starts changing peoples habits, it reaches the status of an innovation.
In my design process I aim to achieve this translation with being
very sensitive to proportions, materials and interactions
while creating a distinctive and long lasting character.
I think that the sustainability of a product has a major part to do,
of how we react with our visual and tactile senses to an object:
A narrow line of feeling perfect and creating a little friction
at the same time, keeps us awake and lets
us learn to desire an object for a long time.
Because even in a global scale with all its facets and
cultural diversities sustainability starts with desirability.
