“As a designer, I am constantly exploring materials and how they influence our perception of an object. Natural materials are close to my heart, and using them in a careful, sustainable way, creating long lasting design. In my work I am aim to enhance a material’s natural qualities, celebrating it’s specific character, functions and beauty. Excellent design triggers our emotions and according to me, materials have a great part to play while designing - or as I call it - giving an object a soul that can be loved”
