Where do you draw inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from everything, architecture to zoology. Quite often, I study what other designers are doing and I look to create the things I don’t see.
Can you talk about your practice in the light of a global pandemic and sociopolitical crisis—what changed, what remains the same?
These times are unprecedented, and with the quarantine, I find myself with a lot more time on my hands. I’ve been balancing my designer and artist hats. One day, I’m designing prototypes to appeal to the masses, and the next day I’m crafting one-of-a-kind pieces solely to express myself during this sociopolitical reckoning.
Where do you see the future of design in the post-COVID world?
I think our post-Covid world is really just gonna be a world with Covid and everything that accompanies it. Masks, illness, vaccines and frustrations will serve as reminders of how fragile life is, especially for those whose lives already hang in the balance. Design will be more introspective with both designers and people in general looking to make statements with the things we produce and purchase.
