On His Design Philosophy
“I select my ideas very carefully. A concept must give me great motivation—if not, I put it to rest. A lot of my initial ideas include an abstract vision of the expression and personality that the product should communicate. Translating this into physical form is my favorite part of the design process.”
On Scandinavian Design
“The new epoch in Scandinavian design illustrates a new time, a new world, and new influences—an important evolution of our design heritage. I am proud to be part of it.”
