What is important for you?



How do you Label yourself?

Describe your work in one sentence without using the word ‘design’.

After working for 7 years, i am still not able to do so, describing without the word design is not the difficulty, but i didn’t find yet the sentence which shows the passion i have and describes my work fully

If interested you can invite me for coffee and i would love to make an verbal attempt.


What is well-being for you? How does it reflect in your work?

You can approach the theme well being in various ways.

This is one of my interests within the field:

The demographic projections for the next 35 years confront us in a surrealistic way. We have never experienced a society so old and are unable to comprehend its consequences. The infrastructures that we have built to support our culture are slowly showing their deficiencies, as the elderly population increases and the workforce decreases.

As the community reinvents itself, we must also reform the way which we deal with care. This sea change may be one of the most important transformations of the 21st century.

Since 2007, I am actively following this subject, collecting information from lectures and trips. This information has inspired multiple future visions, which are communicated through a series of photographs, illustrations, and technical drawings. The currently 80-page collection titled The NewGrey consists of six main chapters.

And is not jet close to an end. some of the visions are currently being developed to become actual systems- product for the future care.
