“Designers give life and voice to objects, and along the way they manifest our vision and aspirations for the future, even those we do not yet know we have.” Paola Antonelli

Good design goes beyond pure problem-solving. It is about formulating our visions for the future and implementing people’s needs and behaviours. Designers have to be curious generalists, asking the right questions. I like to make things happen, creating products and services which serve and excite people. Moving Spaces is a micro-architectural space for home and holiday use, redefining the perception of space and functions. Furniture integrates into a lightweight structure of pure and bright space, creating a new aesthetic while offering multifunctional living.
