He describes his design philosophy as follows:
”A good design idea is goof, not depending of the roots are findable in the form or the function. Every single project is unique for me and that is the reason why I am not trying to hold on to a Dogma or a common design approach – I tried to make my designs structured, but the results may often be too rigid and unappealing. Good design has to be appealing with its function as well as emotionally.”
