“I like to design objects that tell stories.”
As a product designer I always try to create objects with a functional nature that are able to establish an emotional bond with the end user. Furthermore, I trust craftsmanship as the most coherent form of production considering the current environmental situation. Craftsmanship also provides each product with the uniqueness of being made by and for people.

“The real economy of building should refer to how many good things we can achieve at a reasonable cost. It is the same in any kind of economy – the correct relationship between the quality and price of a product. But if we ignore the quality of the product, all of the supposed economy becomes meaningless in any field, and the same happens in architecture.” – Alvar Aalto
