‘My work is characterized by interaction and innovation. My products can be in motion, react on our emotions or respond on developments in our society. I search for new meaning and principles in objects, for unexplored connections between materials, production methods, makers and users. Every project is a research, resulting in interior and public space appliances and designs.’
