About me Biography
From a young age I used to admire the aesthetic beauty in nature. My time was mostly filled with practicing drawing and prototyping, this proved to be an important factor in my later life.
High school was never really my thing and failing many of my exams didn’t help either, this was the final sign I needed to change directions and enter an art school. Once there I studied architecture for the remaining 3 years of high school. Architecture was an amazing subject and fascinated me, especially since my father was an architect, but eventually I discovered there was a different field of studies that in my opinion offered more possibilities towards developing my creative side. This newly discovered subject for me was product design.
I discovered you could design everything if so desired, from a small object like a pen to a complex hyper car. This is what attracted me the most in design, the vast variety of things that can be designed.
In my second year of college I started developing a deeper interest for furniture design, that is when I decided to further try and specialize in this subject, I started doing this by going on Erasmus for six months. My Erasmus study that took place in Slovakia helped me further develop my skills in furniture design.
In 2016 I finally graduated with my bachelor work called ‘TRAPESI’. It gave me joy that later on this bistro table provided me with my first two international design awards on the age of 22. These were the A’ Design Award and the European Product Design Award.
In 2016-2017 not feeling satisfied yet I went on and finished a postgraduate involving Brand& Packaging design. Currently I’m following a one year bachelor involving furniture design to further enhance my design skills.
A design studio has not been established yet, but eventually this is what I want to work towards. Of course this does not mean that as a young designer I don’t accept or create new projects.
