Despite the fact that I have been concerned with product design for eleven years, I am still learning new things and I hope I will keep learning. Every commission is a challenge for me and also an opportunity to explore new areas. I love looking for places and products completely untouched by design. My personal passion is the materials and manufacturing processes – both modern and traditional.

I am engaged in the whole development process of a new product – starting with the first sketches and ideas, through CAD models and technical development, prototyping and presentation, and ending with the final preparation and data for the manufacturing. I enjoy participating in the whole process as I have a chance to form the product right from its birth. I consider design to be rather a craft than art. Maybe that is why I believe that it is crucial for the designer to be able to communicate ideas and work within a team.
