Master of proportion

“When starting a design project, I never wake up in the morning with one incredible, brilliant and revolutionary idea. It is a day-by-day discussion with the team. And it is not only my personal team. I think what matters most in the creative process is the dialogue with the factory team, the engineers and the many more players that contribute with their expertise. As a designer, I want to be involved in the whole procedure and I want to be able to intervene in the making process.”
