What made you choose furniture design?
You can't really talk about choice; I don't think you choose a career like you choose a dish on a menu. You are a work in progress; you have to know how to seize the opportunities and move forward step by step, venturing into ever more ambitious projects. I have not always been where I am, and I don’t know where I will be tomorrow.
What is your essential approach to creation?
For me, the success of a piece is not measured by its aesthetic qualities, it must above all be justified by an intellectual approach, the expression of an idea. Beauty is not a goal but the consequence of the exercise of a style. This Darwinian conception of creation is a founding principle of my work.

What represents a "well made" object ?
The object must come to life, it must be detached from the hand that made it. By this, I mean that the stigma of its making must disappear, and that the link that remains with its maker must only be a spiritual one.
What do you like most about your profession?
The feeling of building an overall work, achievement, as if each object created was a molecule of a larger entity. The feeling that the path is infinite, that no amount of creation will satisfy me. The impression that I am paid for my psychotherapy as I interpret client's wishes and needs.
