I just made up a word!

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to speak at the Open Design Festival‘s Talk100 Sessions, in Cape Town. I was privileged to have a 20 minute slot to talk about anything design!

Most of my design thinking is about creating awareness about social problems. Something that evolved naturally as those issues have impacted my life, directly or indirectly in some way. Instead of moaning about issues, I have decided to constructively address it through design, furniture and products.
