– First of all, could you
when i was young i was always curious and trying to invent new stuff. when becoming older i studied industrial design and did a course in ceramics. there i fell in love with the material and got some ideas.
after graduating i wanted to get the ideas into reality and started my own design studio. i mainly try to focus on fresh and new products, which can be used daily.
– What were the first steps
starting to sell online i think. i also attend at exhibitions now, this year i had my own stand at the dutch design week in eindhoven.
- Where do you find your
inspiration gets to me while doing normal tasks. if i cycle to work i might get a new idea or concept. it suddenly pops out. normally i also keep up to date by reading desing news and visit related shops.
– What does fashion/design mean to you?
design means to me the freedom to create something.
- What’s the inspiration
some inspiration get from nature and some from the big industry. both a beautiful contrast.
– Which one is your favorite
the branch out, a modular piece of furniture, which you can change according to your needs. inspired by a branch, which can grow in any direction.
– One thing I love about
Do you feel the same way
– Do you feel there is
lots of people are interested in new craftmen, so if you master them on a young age, that might be interesting.
– How do you balance
a well designed product is beauty, functionality and price, balanced. i try to make a piece as easy to make and simple as possible, but still keep the quality and function high. the price
– Which brand do you want to
Hem, such a great new brand, which is online based.
– Lots of students often
just rent a studio and begin! do not hesitate and make the ideas reality
– What has been happening in
next is to expand the shops where products are sold. also want to do collaborations with other designers for some new ideas.
– Finally, please tell me
any shop in Tokyo who want to collaborate?
