Modern summer houses and tree
houses originate from room modules.
Reductionism is the principle behind my designs. Children and young
people in particular
should be exposed to uncomplicated but functional products. It is
beneficial to their development if not too
much is predetermined. The point is not for the designer to prove the
creativity of their products in urban spaces.
It is much more about stimulating the children’s own creativity.
My daughters can occupy themselves very intensively and creativity with
an old cardboard box.
