"I’m an artist & designer of Argentine, Japanese and Israeli heritage based in London. I trained in Architecture and Fine Art, and work in those areas as well as products, interiors, writing and teaching. My work has been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Milan, Rome, Eindhoven, Minneapolis, Portland, Kortrijk, Veszprem, Vienna & Glasgow, is held in the collections of the Design Museum, the Sir John Soane's Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Abet Museum, & the Architectural Association, and has been published widely. The atelier has completed, and ongoing projects both internationally (Europe, the US, S America, the Middle East, East Asia) and in the UK. I have lectured at the RIBA, Harvard GSD, UC Berkeley, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Cardiff University, Innsbruck University, the Casa dell'Architettura Rome, the BSR, and the Biennale Interieur, amongst others, and have taught courses at several universities as well as having been Studio Master at Central St Martins in London, and am co-director of Saturated Space at the AA.
I bring equal parts pleasure, colour, and joy, as well as critical consideration, reflection and depth to everything I am lucky enough to be involved in.
My designs are always approachable, usually adorable, often cheeky, and take inspiration from a passionate & lifelong exploration of the themes of Queerness, colour and ornament as a political-aesthetic project, with my objects, artwork, spaces & installations invariably being embodiments of the diasporic, fluid & roaming cultures that surrounded me as I grew up, and which continue to fascinate & inspire me to this day."
