On her idea of design she explains, “I am interested in some aspects of design: I do not like design when it is simply associated with an idea of ‘concept’ and that you should believe in it just because it’s a ‘concept’. I like it when an object that is offered to me is both a super-idea, very simple and at the same time nice to look at. For me, design is this: reinvention heading towards something essential.''
