Design is  my being. It is the material translation of my personality. The shape I create is  an extension of my body, where a part of my soul lives.

To design is filling a void by means of sleek, pure lines  and shapes, often inspired by nature and graphic design.

 

Casting is the major technique I use. This results in repetitive production and small scale installations.

Presented in an installation, the objects evoke an organic and dynamic feeling. They breathe an atmosphere of serenity. Where shadow and light bring the collection to life. Where lines and shapes conduct the rhythm. Where purity and simplicity rule.

 

‘Dare la luce’ (giving birth, giving light), is my goal : Touching people by the purity and soberness of my designs.

Creating something that is beautiful to the mind and eye and that can be functional at the same time.
