What Inspires me in the design world?
Inspirations are everywhere. As long as you keep your eyes open and take a step out in the world, you're bound to run into one.
But what inspires me deeply? Through my senses. The sense of sight, observing every small details and emotion surrounding me. The sense of scent, from the sweet smell of perfume to the rustic sent of oak wood sparks up my imagination. The sense of hearing, music inspires me deeply. My father always told me that music is one of the main sources of inspiration; with it, you can create the form of the building from the flow and movement of a symphony — lastly, touch. From the roughest stone to the smoothness of velvet inspires me to play with texture and find new innovative ways of marrying materials. I strongly believe that when it comes to design, it ís not only seeing it but to experience with all your senses.
Sometimes inspiration happens when you least expect it. You can hear or see something that can trigger you into creating.
