No ObligationHave you ever caught yourself doing something impelled by a vague concept of necessity? Did you question that moment, and if so, where did that train of thought lead? Like most people, I too have lived moments of my life balanced precariously on false beliefs -- and I want none of that in my design.
NO OBLIGATION TO BE SYMMETRICALImperfections are counterintuitive by nature, but their chance and unstructured forms can reveal a dynamic style rooted in the wonders of it all.
NO OBLIGATION TO BE TRENDYAre you out to conform by the senses of others, or to impress the wishes of your own? The more original and imaginative your dream piece, the more likely you will truly and finally feel at home.
NO OBLIGATION TO BE SIMPLIFIEDSome designers may seek ways to simplify the fabrication process -- and I am not one of them. Challenging pieces with unusual assembly techniques and mechanics are often the most enjoyable and rewarding. I’m not concerned about the number of pieces I can produce, but whether the vision can—and will—come to life.
NO OBLIGATION TO PLEASE EVERYONEOne of the most common regrets people have in old age is that they lived more on their own terms and less on the terms of others. You can’t please everyone, so why not place more value on those that you can?

NO OBLIGATION TO BE LIGHT AS A FEATHEROur apologies in advance, but we don’t plot our designs based on how easy they are to carry across a room. We love steel and wood here, and some of our pieces really emphasise that.
NO OBLIGATION TO BE PRACTICALPractical is boots in winter and t-shirts in summer. We like to make designs free from the ‘no-duh’ principles of life -- and something a little bit more unpredictable and exciting.
