What inspires you?
Personally I think Phillipe Starck is a marketing and branding genius. Although his work doesn’t always reflect my personal aesthetic, I love how he has built this iconic brand. He has had the opportunity to work on everything from designing a toothbrush, furniture, plumbing and boutique hotels. I hope Area3 is as fortunate.

What is the most memorable place you have visited?
I will always remember Italy, because of all the beautiful architecture, amazing fashions, well-dressed people and the general hospitable nature of the people.

What is your design mantra?
Less is more.
