I am an independent designer, interior architect and a maker of dreams.
As a designer I want to tell people something.
I create poetic design between art and functionality. My aim is to give design not only its functional approach but also a conceptual dimension, giving people a new perspective on design which stimulates their thinking about meaning and content. I create objects, spaces, installations where one can isolate from the world around and go through an experience where nature, light, material and sound can stimulate and expand the soul.
" For me design is poetry: I make objects that radiate poetry; that illuminate the soul. I want to create icons that are rare, powerful and meaningful. Creations that are not only the object you see, but that reveal a deeper essence. My objects have to surprise the world: one has to wonder first, like a child who for the first time sees the Moon and awes. I want people to think about the meaning... I want to break with convention and to approach design from an unexpected point of view..."
I create different dimensions, so life can be seen and experienced from another perspective which will open your mind and lead you towards new dreams.
