MC : Create furniture from ashes, take advantage of the resources of trees burned in fires and create ecological and functional furniture
MC : Make real and functional dreams that solve problems
MC : I don't really know, but I will always try to do my best to help with my designs.
MC : Solving their needs and not creating new ones because of the fashionable consumerism that exists
MC : Design a table that changes its shape and accommodates different spaces and functionalities, and in turn changes its morphology and graphics, without using metal fittings and everything is only with the wood itself
MC : Design a cutlery for children, because the creation process is almost like a game in the study of the morphology of cutlery and its ergonomics
MC : A more handmade touch and more customizable designs
MC : Towards digitization and futuristic projects that give new solutions very different from the ones we know
MC : Depends on the project, from a week to a month
MC : It is not always the same, but generally I start by solving a problem that exists with the object, something that is functional and different from the market
MC : Less is More and form follows function
MC : Both, depends on the designer
MC : It helps to advance in standardization, quality and helps to visualize the designs in a better way to the client
MC : Autodesk 3ds max and Adobe
MC : Essential, they help transmit sensations, emotions and even functions
MC : How functional is it, its characteristics and where to buy it
MC : Its possible uses, how to create it and its final life
MC : The client, Yes I believe
MC : My design teachers
MC : A Whack on the Side of the Head: How You Can Be More Creative, Roger Von Oech
MC : Experience, time and focusing on the needs of users
MC : Completely! With my friends
MC : It's not really something I think about, so I feel the same as before the accolades.
MC : Red, home, pizza, winter, my baby pillow and Braun
MC : Several clients think that the final renderings of the designs are real photos
MC : Try to design objects and solutions that become part of people's daily lives and in turn enjoy and love them
MC : Not at all, I just like to create things with clay and imagine fantasy things
MC : I hope it's a better world, I try to help with my designs to make it so!
