As a designer, I like to question and make people question the ordinary, trigger their imagination and playfulness and make them smile for a moment. I like to look into the past to understand how things are today to be able to imagine the future.
My interests lie in conceptual thinking, our senses, experiences and memories, social cohesion and material experiments. I use multi-disciplinary ways in my work ranging from food, textiles, colours, illustration and jewellery.

“Human Ivory” suggests to cherish our own “Material” instead of other species teeth and reconsider conventional preciousness. What if we mine our own ivory and turn it into pearls? proposes an egalitarian jewellery collection, where the body is being adorned by it’s own gem, polished from recognizable teeth into an abstract but familiar pearl shape. By the careful transformation of smoothening of the tooth, a possible disgust association of a human tooth evolves into attraction and beauty.
