There are materials and production techniques in which I can detect a certain consideration and care. Possibly because of tactile values that show traces of human contact and the presence of a hand. But also because of my understanding: who I am and what my cultural, social and personal references are.

With my way of working it is often convenient to place different senses together with each other, as I do not think that there are watertight bulkheads between them. An analysis of what the eye hears and the ear sees generates design whereby a piece of music can be transformed into an item of furniture, or a literary work into a room filled with light and color.

This approach has been crucial to the genesis of the furniture series “vesper”, which is an investigation of various materials’ narrative capacity and in which care for details, choice of materials and production techniques create an expression of permanency.
