‘I always try to balance form, practical function and feasibility in a
clear and understandable solution. I find most of my inspiration in
everyday life – sometimes it can be an innovative technique, a new
material or just a well-known ancient function. I want my designs to
be innovative but also durable, so that they can be used and reused
over time.’
