“I like to feel a pulse around me when I work, and I need to be able to see the time limit - then I work the best.
I normally start with sketches by drawing single lines or abstract scribbles which later results in the final design throughout selection and simplification.
By developing design I take inspiration in my sketches, as the actual technique and material often limits my creative process. My vision is to create design for everyday life – preferably to a glance of simplicity and play.
Good design is when a product is delivered and done. It must be in a way that you would not want it any different. It’s the detail that makes the difference.”
