How many times have you been to the Salone del Mobile in Milan?
This will be my fourth time, second time exhibiting my work. Last year was with the Design Academy Eindhoven, now as part of the Spring exhibition.
What does exhibiting here mean to you?
It’s great to be able to meet the design community from around the world. I am not showing a commercial product and hope to prove that you don’t have to show another piece of furniture to be here. My designs are more social designs than anything so I’m offering people a different perspective.
How does Milan differ from Dutch Design Week?
Where we are at Studio Zeta, only the really interested people come to see your work. The busy spots in Milan attract a different, more fun-loving crowd. I think in Eindhoven, there is an older crowd of people who are just there to see nice things, they tend to be less critical.
What are you currently working on?
I just started renting studio space in Eindhoven together with Joep Huisinga and am working on a number of new products to do with Afghan cooking. I have developed a pan which emulates a type of cooking used in Afghanistan, but not found here. The Afghan culture is so old and rich that some of the techniques are dying out. I want to preserve them through these new kitchen products.
