STATEMENT OF ART:
I am always searching perfect balance between aesthetic and functional system. For example, stairs shouldn't sense as a regular stairs,has to be piece of art or solid piece around its on that you can step up.

Art is explain so many things and give some nice feelings and design is mixing functional systems with piece of art and let you use or drive it!
