Is it possible to see the world as it is? If there were a way for you to look around as if you were seeing the world for the first time, what would you do? We are all surrounded by objects, but how do we really see them? Do we use them? Do they inspire us? Is there a way to regain our consciousness?
I see design and art as a wonderful opportunity to answer these questions, and that's why I create. I work within a broad framework that spans from industrial design to installation, spatial design projects, and more artistic/visual projects. However, at the core of my work, there is always the notion of the future and the quest to discover the unexplored. In this context, I aim to awaken people and bring them back to a world where everything is possible, a time when the future is yet unwritten.
In my opinion, in the coming age, the role of the designer and artist will be more about inspiring people rather than just a form of self-expression. I believe that art has the power to restore our awareness and change our perspective on the things around us.
