"A red thread going through my work is that I try to reference my own work without repeating it. Building on previous projects and developing them in a new direction."
"I started looking into using ceramics, this raw material, to create a piece of furniture in dialogue with Muuto. There was an interesting tension I had in mind, between the heaviness of the ceramic tiles and the lightness of a frame supporting it."
"Every time someone comes through the studio, they have this urge to touch it, run their fingers along its ridges. That is how you know that you succeed in making something truly tactile."
