I work best when: At the kitchen table, in my own home My greatest design influence: Travel, cultures, history, everyday life My best design moment: When I was in Japan in 2002 and did my first work under my own name as a professional designer My most important mentor: Kristina Isola The word that best describes my design philosophy: Clean lines and silence When I travel I always take: An iPod and a sketchbook An Oiva teapot makes a great gift. The pattern I’m most fascinated with right now: Various textures and surfaces; stripes and small, discreet patterns The smell that reminds me of childhood: Cinnamon buns and my parents’ colognes The best Sunday morning music: Carla Bruni If I were not working as a designer, I would be: A gourmet chef
