From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
During my travels, I have more time to think about my job, about details, about moods.
Describe your favorite project:
It was in 2008, the Kerakoll Design Gallery in Milano, an “urban archeology project” where, during the demolitions, we found different layers of walls. After we discovered a very amazing brick wall and wood beams on the soffit, originally since 1860, so the whole project changed and at the end, all the other shops on the same street followed the same mood.
What’s your prediction for the next big trend in design?
The re-use of objects from the past, the re-search of something that comes from the our neighborhood (from a short distance), all that helps to create a comfortable atmosphere with little money.
