For over 50 years I have succumbed to the iron. During my basic training as a craftsman, I got to know different design approaches and later formed my own from them. Following my conviction that good design requires good craftsmanship, I place emphasis on execution right from the design phase. In my work I always try to be honest with our time, to reflect our time in which I live. I want to learn from the experiences of the past in order to create something new together with something new. I get clues and inspiration by going through the world with open eyes, observing nature and valuing simplicity and honesty. Sometimes a word, a sentence or a poem inspires me. Nature, in particular, often offers me clues for a line, for a form. Exactly copying nature or repeating designed works from the past was never an issue for me.
