A short description of your collection.
fluid.light.solid. – liquid metal gets in touch with old oak and becomes one solid piece. The atmospheric light lets image the creation process and enlivens the object.
What inspires you?
Stories inspire me the most. Whether there are just thought experiments or real experiences I use them to understand the material I´m working with.
Your style in three words.
significant – polarizing – unique.
Detail makes a difference… What’s yours?
The little incidents that occur in the right time at the right spot, if you know how to tease them…
Which object do you wish to design?
There is a decommissioned church near my studio, that bares some interesting possibilities.
If your brand was a song?
Heavy like the metal I use, classic like the oak wood and some little electronics added.
