What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
I don’t want to get out of bed. But the loud alarm sound wakes me up.
Why do you design products for kids?
For the better experience for kids. They are full of curiosity since they are less experienced than adults. In this “critical” period, their experiences of seeing, hearing, touching has a considerable ongoing influence. And I design for a good relationship between parents and their child. I hope my products to deliver a positive energy by which both parents and their child can share their feelings.
What do you enjoy in your occupation?
Just the like the other designers, I enjoy the moment when my idea is realized. Making a product is a multidisciplinary process. This process requires the involvement of people with different backgrounds. And it is really difficult to let them understand my abstract ideas of colors or feelings. An active communication is essential. These difficulties amplify the enjoy of realization.
If you weren’t a designer…
I have no idea. I haven’t thought about it. Maybe … an official?
How did the idea of your product emerged?
My idea starts with thinking of the situation when a product is being used. When I clearly understand the environment in which things are used with, everything from form to material is naturally determined.
