“Think big! If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.”
– Michiel Wijnen
WHAT MAKES ME PROUD?
As I am originally educated as a product designer my design for the Nazka Screen gives me a special feeling. This 3D printed screen and architectural system for Aectual, is now prescribed by renowned architects/designers for their own projects. I have designed furniture and lighting for several prominent international brands, but as designer/design director for another studio. Nazka is my first design under my own name, in collaboration with Meeder Ontwerpers.
WHAT IS MY DREAM PROJECT?
The one I am working on with bs;bp right now :). A high-end residential project, for a creative and entrepreneurial client. Dialogue on a good level, sufficient budget, high ambition and a good team of like-minded experts.
