Human at the Centre of Design
What I create is always driven by human beings and their well-being within the design. Now more than ever, conscious design will play a fundamental role in architecture and interior design. Forced to live inside our homes for long stretches has helped us realise the importance of spaces we occupy.
My balcony helps me concentrate.
Where the Sky and Water Meet
My favourite place in Guatemala, Lake Atitlán, represents an encounter with my ancestors, nature, and the beauty of the world. Here, the dramatic forms of the surrounding mountains integrate beautifully with the lake’s calm countenance. Mirroring the sky, the lake is also a symbol of the universal unification of humankind.
For me, carpets are like pieces of art that complement the experience of the space they occupy. Using watercolours, I illustrated the design to carry the experience of Atitlán. Water being the unifying element had to be a part of the design process too.
Being in Atitlán is like living among the clouds. Hence, the carpet’s texture is designed as ‘a walk through the clouds’.
