“I see a lot of similarities with design and sport. Boxing is an art for me. I wanted my boxing to be beautiful and aesthetic, like dancing. In the furniture, I can see edges and directions similar to those that I have seen in boxing; with punches and movements there is a direction, they aim at certain angles to the opponent and it all happens inside a ropeclosed place. When it comes to furniture, it is the same thing: the structure which is related to each other in the midst of certain boundary conditions. While playing sports, I have come to understand positions where the body is strong and similar types of “positions” are also strong as structures of the body.furniture. My journey to become a furniture designer is exceptional and I hope my story is reflected in my products. It is important for me to design quality and timeless products that add value to people’s daily lives. “
