In my research I’m concerned with touching the individual, with going beyond the mere satisfaction of the basic needs of the ’standard dude’ while keeping in mind the modern idea of generalized access to products or technics that improve living, things that make people strong again or that have the power to console or comfort them. What I would like to spread around is help and redress. I want to strengthen initiatives and encourage individual aptitudes to express themselves and to act (in the same way as an artificial limb replaces the real limb) by creating furnishing units that are protective, comfortable and gratifying. This idea is central to my nascent series of ’furniture-supports’ (Glüp, Ioio and Mammamia), and to the formal break that has brought seats that conform to body shapes as closely as possible, while taking into account the widest range of singularities (corpulence, physical particularities), and without forgetting the narcissistic demands of consumers.
