Are you a designer? Why or why not?

I focus on learning, creating, and communicating through different mediums. Whether that makes me a designer or not is not up to me. 

One word to describe your take on design:


The last thing you made:

PRADA in Plaster 

The next thing you want to make:

Fashion Accessories + Furniture

A designed object you adore:

IKEA Pencils

A designed object you can’t stand the sight of:

Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye

A moment of pure creative joy:

When I am learning. There is always a bridge between X and Design.

When we say “designing the future,” what comes to mind?

Character. I always like when there is a sharp contrast between the designed object and the space, a kind of interruption of the environment. I usually think of that through size, color, and materiality. A good example would be like placing a PRATONE Couch in the middle of St. Peter’s Basilica. 

If you could show your work to anyone in the world, who would it be?

Frank Ocean

Your aesthetic embodied as a...

Sound? Ontheway! By Earl Sweatshirt + Standing On The Corner

Color? #94ADDA

Texture? Trace Paper

Your *grail*: if you could own one iconic design work, what would it be?

Yomi Eko’s Inflatable Arm Chair

What’s next for you?

Starting a position as an architectural designer + let fashion and interior design drip into my work + find more music.︎

Pink Essay is a creative studio & platform re-designing design culture. We make experiences + exhibitions + archives, synthesizing the digital and physical.

We believe that good design is democratic, accessible, antiracist, sustainable and collaborative.

Design culture is on the move: people are excited and ready to see what we can make when we believe in the power of objects as tools of human growth and community connection.

We’re here to make connections, tell stories, and build a new design culture.
