I AM

* 24. 08. 1989 in Switzerland

For the past few years I have developed into a designer with a deep passion for materials. Material in Latin is “materia”, which is also the origin of the word “matters”. All that matters in my opinion is that the right materials are at the foundation of further success with moving our society forward. Due to the nature of materials being scarce, we need to develop a deep understanding of materials, trends and the future context in which they are applied. To have a future, we constantly need to improve on this foundation. I believe materiality can be the guide for us to assess our sustainability with the support of smart interactive design, trend forecasting, branding and fashion. To me it is about responsibly leading the future way in a rapidly evolving world. Time is limited and therefore design has to be intuitively and innovative.

“I have never tried that before, so I think I should defenitely be able to do that.” – Pippi Longstocking
