What is your favorite product and why?
It’s difficult, quite predictable and I think a bit boring. I’d like to say it’s more of a unique design piece, such as the Barcelona chair, but it’s not. It’s the iPhone, because it makes an unorganized person organized and the other one is the Expedit shelving unit from Ikea – it’s cheap as chips, does its job, is versatile and simply looks good. Hate the fact that they are mass produced, though. Oh, at the moment I really like Benjamin Hubert and his Cargo chair.

What is the latest trend in your industry?
Both in interiors and furniture there is a very obvious move away from dark wood towards more color. Hopefully it won’t go mad… Another trend at the moment is less matching and creating a more ‘thrown-together’ look…

What are you working on now?
Lots of different ideas, such as a spacy light fitting, a dining room table and I am also looking at desks for home environment.

What do you plan for the future?
That’s a secret…
