The first time I touched whale skin, four years ago in Japan, I was surprised by its lustre. It was so beautiful but at the same time I was caught in a moral dilema for the first time.
This is a story about emotions, not vegan.

Design is everywhere. To me, design is like a daily routine that could come to me at any time, anywhere. Since I gain design inspirations from everything, the flow of ideas are very fast through the changes of the four seasons. I try to be always open-minded and take in ideas from my surroundings, and try to incorporate different materials and two opposing points of view into my works.
