About Claire Requa : The design principle of Claire Requa is to start with filling a need, a gap in the market. Then to be able to realize this product with the practice of eco-friendly procedural practices - using materials (either by recycled materials, or upcycling) throughout the entire life of that product. The products have to be FUNKTIONAL - fun, funky and functional.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Love to bring a smile to one's face. My products are FUNKTIONAL - (fun, funky, and functional)
