My practice spans between material and object design. I am profoundly inspired by raw natural materials, waste as a resource, color, traditional crafts and architectural design. Within the context of climate change and out of respect and admiration towards our natural environment , as a creator, I feel responsible to constantly be on the lookout for methods to create smart, not just beautiful, objects. Therefore, in my design process I do in-depth research, myriads of experiments, leave plenty of room for failure, accidents and randomness which I allow the to dictate an idea for a final product and shape it to a great extent. For location specific projects, I prefer to work with locally available materials and tools at hand. I believe that beauty may well be functional, too.
