I always keep passion on my fascinations, these are space, object, material, perception, phenomenology, and commercial. Through my work, I explore the relationship between people's vision, movement and their surroundings. I believe that spaces, objects, and materials should address emotional and human needs, besides maintaining physical performance and aesthetic appeal.
