1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.

I am a London-based multidisciplinary designer with a focus on sustainability, material tactility and virtual realities. My work involves researching and developing innovative approaches at the intersection of art, design and technology.

With a background in fashion and design engineering (from Central Saint Martins and Royal College of Art), I am very interested in ideas surrounding materiality and tactility, and how we can design materials for sensual experiences and provoke discussions on society and the environment.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

They are the Red Brick Art Museum in Beijing, Nezu Museum in Tokyo, Foam in Amsterdam, Sir John Soane Museum in London and the SALT Galata in Istanbul. On my past visits to all of these sites I have really enjoyed the spatial experience; they are all sensual spaces filled with textural architectural details. They help to make the visiting experience extra special, regardless of the work on show.
