C: What do you think collectible design brings compared to other more massively produced pieces?
LB: Working with limited editions creates more opportunities in experimental materials, abstract constructions and innovative thinking. All things that makes an object quite unique and authentic. I think we all would like to have this at some point.
C: An interior designer you dream to work with?
LB: I would love to work with Halleroed. I always get inspired by their way of balancing material combinations, contrasting elements and designed details in their projects. It’s iconic and timeless at the same time.
