What key influence can we anticipate seeing in projects you are yet to release?
In 2022 we’ve looked locally more than ever before. We’re working more and more with newly discovered makers and craftspeople – Tim Noone, Tanika Jellis, V.Brokkr, Laker Studio and Volker Haug, to name a few.
What is the one piece of advice you would share with a young designer?
Design is not singularly about aesthetics. It encompasses all the senses, irrespective of what typology of design you practice; how things feel from a tactile, a sensory and a psychological perspective.
When you walk into a room, what is the first thing you always notice about a space?
I notice the small things before I’m aware of the big picture – how the details fit together, the junctions meet and how well they have endured the test of time. Once I have zoomed in, then I can zoom out.
What does designing for a better world mean to you in 2023?
Tread lightly, buy less, consume quality, keep things succinct. Reinvent and reimagine what you have or give old things new life – it yields a far more interesting conversational approach.
