"I like to describe my work as: fresh, soulful, minimal, with a slice of humor, designed by my own way of thinking, brought back to the essence of the idea. I like to use iconic and archetype images, forms and objects, which everybody will recognize, which I will interpret and use in a different way. I try to put a little poetry and soul into a object. The idea usually defines the design of the product."
