Statement

Our surrounding affects our behaviour.

The objects we grow up with shape our thoughts.

The places we visit and occupy become external memories.

Nothing is neutral.

Design should emerge out of the study of co-habitation of people and things, of the ways in which people respond to and interact with the inanimate.
Developed from the study of life, design increases our ability to shape experiences.

Revealing the relationships between people and objects is the aim of my approach. It allows us to see ourselves as part of a bigger picture - a complex system - we belong to and live in.
