What can I say about my design style... I don’t believe in the unity of the “true, the good and the beautiful” . Instead, I believe that aesthetically valuable and quality-conscious design will make us better people, as Bauhaus or the Werkbund once proclaimed…
'I create my own world with wicked things and to turn them into a symbolization of distinctive taste and humor.'
