STATEMENT OF ART:
The viewpoint of my designing process comes from mountain climbing sport
experience which has been my passion for many years.
The considerations made to achieve the chosen target is similar both in natural and
creative life. In both situations it is necessary to focus on the basic needs for survival.
The harsh environment in height of mountains teaches to analyze optimal minimum
of necessary tools needed. If in these kind of challenging conditions maximum
performance can be achieved with minimum materials, aren’t the loads of
unnecessary things in our daily life meaningless?
My aim when creating is to get rid of unnecessary promises providing user with
honest and simple design.
