ABOUT

I design for the textile industry and work on projects in cooperation with architects for whom I design unique pieces.
Movement, play of light and color, and the quality of materials are important elements in my work.
I look for the expressive potentials inherent in the material. My way of working is by means of research and association.
My research focuses on two inseparable aspects:
– a search for new tactile qualities which takes me to unusual and surprising combinations of material, structure, form and color.
– a search for ways to integrate my work with the requirements and characteristics of a specific space or an industrial product.
Moving between mass production and ‘unica’ inspires me. It means, approaching the same resource from a different angle.
