"I often notice that when people talk about sustainability or ecology, the conversation soon turns to the use of recycled materials or cradle-to- cradle. Of course, those are really important issues. But what is most important to me is coming up with an idea that will stay relevant for a long time. You can think about recycling and all sorts of ecological materials, but if your design only has a lifespan of three to five years, you can never call it sustainable."

It’s all about balance and gut feeling. Something functional that is pleasing for the eye will have double impact: by seeing it, by experiencing it, people get into another – maybe happier – mindset.
