I often get inspired by narratives; the origin, context and relationship between things.
For me design is a lot about where things come from and why we create them.

I love digging into stories from the past, from other disciplines or other worlds and bringing aspects of them into my design process. Yet sometimes inspiration also comes through a painting, a cloud or a chewing-gum on the street; the thoughts are not easy to capture!

I use design as a tool to understand the world and seek ways to examine our everyday objects, rituals and culture.

Good design is knowledge, curiosity, courage and JOY!
