Education
I am a designer. Always searching for surprises and beauty.
In the urge to share these experiences, my concepts become products.
Appliable and admissible for everyone.
Products that exist out of emotional experiences in a world created by love for surprises, curiosity and ofcourse, beauty.
New products for a new time.

Quotes
The New York Times | May 2002, Project Impovvisare , Milan.
Cut. Smooth. Pour. Then Sip. A new life for Plastic Bottles. 'I am disappointed that I could not do in a few weeks what the Design Academy students had done in a few days'.

Frame, May/June 2002 | Porcelain Bookcase.
Normally reserved for showpiece objects, here porcelain has been used for a utilitarian bookshelf. The unit is made by stacking square segments in the furnace, where heat causes them to deform, creating the final, unique shape.

Het Parool | Nov/Jan 2002/2003, Wintershow Droog & Co, Amsterdam.
The lamps personify little persons that humbly bend themselves forwards or nestle down sorrowful on the table.
