STATEMENT OF ART:
Designers should be like water, easily flowing and versatile enough to fit within any container. Bespoke designs cannot be mass produced if they are to be informed by the clients' individual tastes and needs. This continuous dexterity of inspirations is the flame that keeps the passion for design burning. Only with the touch of referencing in culture, art, history and function, design can become a timeless soul, other than being just a space with its mere outer beauty.
