What you love/hate about design is…?  

I get intrigued and inspired by design that has a timeless look. Looking at design, I love to focus on the piece itself. Without looking at the title, executor and date and materials the piece should tell a story and give the chance to wonder about.


What is your secret superpower?

Endless playing with materials and uncovering hidden qualities.

What is the value of design and/or beeing a designer?

The possibility to create and show different perspectives. These new dimensions keep your mind awake and push you to explore and think further.

If you had three free wishes….?

A must do/see/try in the Euregio?

Visit the Fashion museum and the Japanese garden in Hasselt.

Your epic fails best work/project/discovery?

I enjoy the fact that discoveries can be made by accidents or coincidences, they can be very helpful in the process of making. Some of my own preferred jewellery pieces are actually the product of an accident. I like the liberating feeling of these spontaneous actions.
