“ – What is the major challenge while designing and creating a new product ?
– I would say that despite the fact that there is a lot of work and efforts put into the design process of a product, I always try to make sure that this tension is not perceptible at the end. Being able to have enough distance with the object you design while you are working on details that are sometimes below the millimeter scale is a crucial point. To contain a lot of attention and work within a relaxed looking object is what I try to aim for. ” (Excerpt from an interview with ligature.ch)
