—the most important thing you’ve designed to date:

I got to design a special art piece called “Time for Peace” for our clients commercial lobby in Beverly Hills. The piece consists of a clock and a peace sign hung and rotating from 20 foot ceilings. It is a very powerful piece especially when you see it in person. The message behind the installation is close to my heart and resonates right now more than ever with the world events.  “Time for Peace” is meant to inspire all of us to promote justice, seek peace, embrace love and coexist.


—a project you are working on now

We are working on a beautiful residential project in Beverly Hills which will be a mix of elegance, simplicity and earthy organic materials. We are creating a lot of unique custom furniture and lighting for this project. The client has 3 little girls and we are so excited to design their rooms. Using durable materials and making the home a functional hub for a family and at the same time honoring the elegant high design aesthetic is our priority.
