My focus is on furniture Design. I am attempting to redefine what furniture is. I want people to change their expectations about furniture. I want people to not only use furniture but to think about and appreciate the design. My Design philosophy is quite simple. Designs should be aesthetically simple but pleasing and functional if not multifunctional. Design has a purpose and should seek out to fulfill that purpose.
