Unique visual partnership

"As an architect, interior designer and designer of transmission forms, this collection is inspired by my experiences, observations and fascinations derived from a variety of design fields. These ideas have been visualised in partnership with Forbo Flooring through the medium of high resolution digital printing both on textile and vinyl substrates. Each one giving it’s unique characteristics to my imagery.

I have based the collection on the idea of architectural modularity and the desire to organize the space around us in an architectural way. This is realised through the use of repetitive geometric forms, such as hexagons, trapezoids or braided structures which form the base of the collection. My experience in interior design has inspired me to combine those structures with the textures of classic interior materials such as wood, fabrics, metal and leather."

"When designing, I like to experiment, I observe the beauty of nature and the physical phenomena that surround us. This often becomes the inspiration for new projects. A unique artistic interpretation."

Geometric forms & new technologies

"As a designer of industrial forms, I am fascinated by organic structures but also new technologies related to 3D printing. By combining these elements with the geometric shapes, the designs I have created achieve a quality of softness and three-dimensionality.

Throughout the collection there is a recurrent theme based on the variable colours of adjacent modular forms. In nature this is associated with the refraction and absorption of light reflections. I have used it as a design tool, giving each pattern dimension and subtlety which, when combined with the traditional familiarity of modular patterning, creates an exciting fusion of classic form and 21st century technology."



Geometric yet seemingly organic, Flower combines elements that both challenge and reassure us in a way that provokes thought and discussion blurring the space between nature and design.

Mechanical and repetitive Trapezoid forms blend with recognisable material surfaces, each one playing with dimension and the perception of shape within the patterns context.


Based on the traditional structure of a woven form, Wicker transcends the ordinary by taking a range of textures that although familiar become exciting and unusual in the context of this juxtaposition.

A seemingly bizarre synergy of conventional form with an unexpected twist, Hexagon is both curious and strangely compelling in a uniquely inspired way.
