A selection of his works:
Basics of the architecture and construction field. Native elements that are used nowadays for colossal buildings.
Bring something natural without finish or color concrete and metal a material that does accomplish a finish.
Natural and industrialized at the same time.

The concept is based on the architecture and construction field, pure elements for a construction which are used nowadays for modern buildings, these two materials have been used for decades, and this inspired me to take them as a reference.
Wire used a soul for a solid piece and concrete referred to a shell or a main body for the bowl.
The mixture of these two materials “metal” and “concrete” can deliver such an interesting product, we do have a native appearance using concrete but combined with a brass finish on a metal can enrich the product, for example when you see a product made of concrete and wood or ceramic, rubber and glass.

The second concept is focused on elements related toclassical music with Yamaha as arepresentative for this, being a brand that is classic, quality on instruments,a traditional image, this concept would represent a nostalgia that is in peoplewho used to have a turntable or acetate discs, even getting in a same speakercould see what it has inside the horn, with materials that reflect these goldenera of music.

As the bike market is only growing I propose to Sigma to produce bike accessories for which there is more and more demand.

It allows you to hold it in your hands even when hot. In fact, when held, the gap in between two rings reduces the surface in contact with your hands. It also allows air to flow in and the wide rings are thick enough to stay cooler than a regular cup. The grooved surface is keeping the after sip drop to trickle on the table. And finally the “flat” beak allows the drink to slowly stream and cool down to prevent mouth scald.
