I design every day objects, aiming to give them a twist towards the unordinary and the unexpected. What that is, differences, since every project has its own conditions. I don´t have a template on how my design should end up, hopefully I even surprise myself. I work both with projects to be massproduced, as limited editions, one-offs or objects as results of experiments in the studio, all equally important.
