People kind of tend to mystify design and architecture by suggesting you need to train.
You know some people say that you make watches or perfume bottles, it's all different things.
You know that's history, that's why some people say that my stuff is retro, but I don't agree.
I don't like to make my life like a book.
My life style in a sense is kind of private.
Well, I never studied design and I went to art school to study art, you know, sculpture and things like that, and ended up making things like sculpture and started making chairs and jewelry together and that's how I started.
So if I want to buy a light in a shop and I don't find a light that I like, I think to myself what would I like? What would I like to buy? Then I started to imagine and design it for myself a lot of the time.
You know like it has its own personality, its own character.
I'd love to be approached to do ordinary things more.
Yeah, my dream would be to work for 6 months and then have 6 months to play, just snowboarding, surfing, and going to cool places to listen and be alone and kinda chill out.
I've always listened to a lot of film music, actually.
Then I started to do furniture and interiors for a friend and just to get stuff in a magazine, and then slowly started to build up and started to doing exhibitions.
If somebody asked me about my inspiration I would say that it's not the peopleand it's not the things, it's travel and experiencing different environments.
And where I grew up in Australia, surfing was a part of culture.
I'm interested in youth culture and popular culture.
