environmental designer

I trained as a cabinetmaker and my creations are based on cabinetmaking, but I have also gained experience with other materials such as metals, plastic, glass and textiles. This enables me to create multi-material pieces. At present I’m working mainly in furniture and my favourite piece is the chair, which is an interesting object for creation what with its technical constraints and its demand for comfort, ergonomy and esthetics. I set up Designa as a multi-skill team because I want things and people to be complementary: product designer, cabinetmaker, joiner and business head. We design products and build maquettes and prototypes. The concept enables me to develop products rapidly. The furniture makers we work with are partners: our aim is to progress together. Knowing materials and technologies enables us to:
• design products that integrate fabrication technology,
• take forecast budgets into account,
• communicate well with factory workers, thanks to my own training as a tradesman.
For me, being a designer means:
• creating objects that are near to people,
• observing and analysing life styles and needs,
• making life easier and more hassle-free,
• producing beautiful and functional objects.
