"With my experience in architecture, user centered design, meaningful products and my passion to pure aesthetics of Scandinavia, I maintain a balance between functionality and visual look in all of my work. I believe that good design is timeless, kind for environment and well produced. That includes the understanding of the material use and production techniques."
