My Highlights from Design Miami/ 2014
I feel like I crave fewer and fewer objects in my life, and so the ones that do enter into my living space carry a big burden. They need to have a soulfulness, they need to function, they need to be optimistic and forward-thinking but not gimmicky. I want to look at them every day for the next 50 years and always get something new from them.
I love Sheila Hicks’ work. The objects are like beings: moving, indecipherable, poetic, irreducible. I feel like I could live with this piece forever and not really get to the bottom of it.

My interest is really two-fold: First, my new apartment has ceilings so low that I can almost touch them, so I have a newfound passion for all things close to the ground ... and second, I feel like Paulin embodies the kind of optimism about space that was so prevalent in late ’60s and early ’70s Europe. I mean, we're living in very very conservative, pessimistic times by comparison.
