On His Design Philosophy
“My interest in design is driven by the human experience of space. My process sources from contemporary culture to create context-driven industrial design with a rooted interest in performance. I apply principles of mobility, lightness and durability with a focus on improving the objects that shape our built environment.”

“I find that new Scandinavian design is interested in global perspectives, founded in a long history of rational and ecological thinking. It embraces the connected world that we live in while using these underlying values to improve infrastructures of contemporary production and distribution.”
