Why was that exciting to you?
I really believe that you can transform a trivial piece—something people don’t find particularly attractive—into something extraordinary. The result was Frame.
Were you surprised by the response to Frame?
Yes! There were tons of modifications to the project, especially when adapting it for mass production. I wasn’t sure it was going to work as I had imagined it. But in the end, I was really satisfied; people seem to appreciate the graphic expression of the piece and understand it just by looking at it. It was nominated for an Editor’s Choice Award at the 2018 Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
Do you have a dream project?
There are so many things I’d like to explore. I’ve become a huge fan of artificial intelligence. I don’t know how this will relate to design, but I don’t want to limit my imagination or stay in my comfort zone.
What would I find if I were to look in your purse?
Pencils, maybe a sketchpad and lipstick, and probably a napkin with some abstract idea written on it. I have to catch the ideas flowing in my mind or they’ll disappear. I also map them on my phone.
Do you rely heavily on your phone?
I’m trying to be less connected with the digital world, because there’s too much happening. You have to stay conscious about what’s going on, but too much information can feel overwhelming.
How do you quiet your thoughts?
I recently took up skiing and really like the feeling of being in control while being out of control. The sport grabs your attention enough that you get lost in nature. You forget everything else. For a moment, you lose yourself.
