What should a project have to keep it from going out of style?
Balance in selecting furniture.
Do you use commercial brands or do you prefer intentional designs
for each project? What are your iconic brands?
A little bit of everything, although there are many factors to consider,
such as whether the customer has furniture that he may want and can
take advantage of, the location of the project, the requirements that

the “fashionable interior designer” as you say. Many of these labels
surprise me, because I do not believe them, I just do my job, you know?
But one always likes to be recognized for one’s work and what you do.

own terms a good interior design project?Increasingly. The client of
10 years ago has nothing to do with the client of today. He is more travelled,
more cultivated and he has more defined criteria.
What do you think we will next see coming out of your studio? In
which project are you immersed now? (if you can count them...)
Well there are a couple of projects that have a little left to see the light
and I think they will have a certain effect, but I cannot tell you more.
