I am an animist. I believe that objects and spaces are animated and alive.

My dream is to contribute to the world of objects and spaces. Creating designs that don’t tell stories but rather catalyze new stories: mutually crafted stories between objects and humans. At the moment my work and design process is primarily digital, but I’m equally obsessed by the physicality of design. I’m looking for manufacturers and fabricators to collaborate with, to make the real world more imaginative.

I graduated cum laude from the Piet Zwart Institute, Master Interior Architecture: Research + Design in 2017. At the moment I’m in the process of setting up Supertoys Supertoys - Design Studio for the Imaginary, based in the Netherlands.
