- About

I am a Designer working and living in Asia.
I like to work on all scales: From mass production to smaller series and limited editions down to a single object.

My design interests ranging across various fields: Technology and how it integrates itself into people's life, gets taken for granted and how it has to adapt again to follow the progression of societies. 
Furniture from a functional object to being a cultural statement.
Experimental projects to push boundaries of manufacturing, new materials or exploring the junction between physical and digital.

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.

The Designer in me

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.
