I design domestic tableware for the present food culture in which the pleasure of proper dining is a luxury that is only enjoyed once in a while. The daily meal covers the individual’s basic physiological needs, whereas the social and emotional needs are covered by the cosy weekend dinner in company of good friends or family.
I believe that the pleasure of dining, be it daily or occasional, can be intensified through seductive and enjoyable tableware, just like the food itself. Therefore my aim is to create objects that are sensuous and tempting, that invite handling, pouring and serving.
By using organic and fluid forms, curved elegant lines and a strong graphic idiom I create objects for the senses.
I find great pleasure in designing for mass production as well as limited series or one-offs, and the way a piece of work is made is always of great interest to me.
Technical considerations are not a hindrance to my creativity, if anything they feed into the development of a design.
