I AM
VISION

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 diverse future context in which they are applied.

To have a future, we constantly need to improve on this foundation. With the combination of trend forecasting, user involvement, understanding of anthropology, nature and industry I believe the right materiality can be the guide for us to assess our sustainability while elevating the individual experience.

In a rapidly evolving world to me it is about playfully creating the future.

NEVER BORED.
ANGELA IS A VIBRANT OPTIMISTIC VISIONARY.

Infused with fascination by the exceptionalities of natural phenomena, she seeks to create dynamic and erratic manifestations for improved human experiences.

Her curiosity and “can do” mentality results in a direct physical reaction to any given brief. Through this she can freely play with actions and reactions of shapes, colours and matter to reveal the unpredictable. Combining components of the physical world, aspiring towards unexpected associations, stories and discoveries.

Her research on alternative futures materialises in a multidisciplinary analogue and digital approach including film, textile and product design. Through her work she creates unique opportunities for architecture, the fashion and interior industry.
