“As a 12 year old I built myself my very first playhouse with a simple furniture inside and everything in my back yard.  I loved building things with my hands. I’m in constant search of the hidden potential of everyday objects and materials, from high-tech climbing ropes to shoes, dishes and light bulbs. When it comes to materials, there’s always more than meets the eye.”
