MA work

My process is based on finding the simplest possible solutions. I use natural materials to create simply manufactured forms which come together in simple constructions that maximise functionality. This ‘less is more’ approach leads me to products that are easy to pack and distribute, easy to put together and easy to use. The resulting aesthetic is simple and true to its function: each detail has a defined and intuitive purpose.
