About his design philosophy: ”Everything is different. The core of my philosophy says that every single product has to be treated on a specific way and its main function should be found. Secondary importance has the search after a bit of humour, surrealism or poetry in my works. The end result is a natural product for the consumer”.
About Scandinavian design: ”The strength of Nordic design is a natural learning and understanding of daily demands. We want to serve cool lemonade in a carafe in Summer, and we need a comfortable light source in Winter. The strength of Scandinavian design is its critic glimpse for the aestheticism and that it didn’t emerge by chance. This makes the beauty of products”.
