“I always imagine that I have only one customer and that is myself.”
Tom Stepp is an architectural technician and architect. He graduated in architecture from the Danish Academy of Architecture and founded the design company, Tom Stepp, in 1980.
“In general I want the products I have designed for myself. I often feel like kind of an inventor occupied with improvements. I feel satisfied when other people appreciate my effort and I get inspired by everyday life. I always imagine that I have only one customer and that is myself. I look at my own personal needs because if I need a particular product I believe that others do, too. Right after getting the idea I start sketching. I am usually able to do the conception in my head so the drawing process is simply a clear visualization, which has to be done. Afterwards, I resolve the technical aspects about materials, dimensions and so on.”
