Everything is designed

It's no surprise that the furniture or clothes we buy have been designed by someone. But have you ever thought that a pavement, a washing bowl or obstetric forceps also have their own design story? Everything is designed.

Telling stories

Every piece of furniture and every object in this interior tells its own unique story. They have been carefully selected and set by the owner. Nothing is accidental here.

Japanese by heart

Japanese culture has been influencing minds of European designers for two centuries now. That's what my passion for interior design is about, Japanese influences in western design and a taste for the modern in Japan.
