I take objects we use in our daily routines, put some colourful soul into them and this way try to raise a city‘s liveability and quality of life.
So, architect of the daily life is what I consider myself.
I care for the small and insignificant things of our daily life. Using them I create something new out of the allegedly familiar and even add a story to it.
In doing so, it is real simplicity that attracts me most.
And to therefor create the right but still surprising setting is the challenge I love to take on. I don‘t limit myself to a certain material.
I use synthetics, paper, cloth – my work clearly shows that for me there is nothing too colourful, too funny nor too absurd.
For what I want to experience is a well designed and colourful world.
