This is an interview with a lovely man we met in Milan 3 years ago and now he is showing his latest game-changing designs there. We say ‘game-changing’ with trepidation, but there is no denying he is responsible for one of the most iconic designs of the last decade (the Plumen bulb) and this new led lighting collection for Beem, including one called ‘Smile’ (don’t mind if we do) is set to be another winner.

This guy isn’t loud or showy. He is just bloody good. Perhaps the next Jasper Morrison in the making? Have a read and decide for yourself. You may be surprised by how many of his designs you recognise.
