“Much of my work comes from a careful observation of everyday life.
I like to analyze human behavior to identify small problems to be solved with simple and solutions, that can also be aestethically pleasing. The form - function binomial is now given for granted, we must begin to consider a third value and think in terms of form - function - emotion. Objects, by their nature, are passive instances, but some have a empathic charge that makes them look different: in what I do I like to instill a poetic or exciting element, something that generaties surprise, irony or mere sympathy that makes the product vibrating, even if for just a moment.”
