As an industrial designer, I am interested in working with standard materials, as well as industrial refuse, considering possibilities for using and reusing materials for generating new products. My projects cover a broad range—from exploration and experimentation of materials to design and product development—and I consider human energy to be integral for production, as a way of reducing the use of industrial machines and their energy consumption. I believe there are many reusable resources that can be obtained at a very low cost (sometimes virtually nothing), allowing new products to be made from old as they reenter the market through reuse.
