“All my work takes it starting point in the function. The function can both have a concrete utility, or be more based on sensual functions that is capable of being perceived by the senses. The process takes place in my universe across disciplines of exploring drafting, sketching, testing and building. Design is a language telling a story by reflecting the integrated values. It can be sensed in the quality of the function, choice of material, craftsmanship techniques and the aesthetic idiom of the object.”
