Poetry without words features ecologically tenable textiles, material inventions and jewelry made of found objects. All combine old forgotten knowledge and technologies and new strange ideas.

It is very important to make people think about their consumption habits. Only the knowledge of what surrounds us, can enable us to take our own decisions on what and how much do we really need. I wanted to facilitate this learning process both for children and the grown-ups. If we know more about materials, processes and possibilities, we can then consciously decide to use eco-friendly, sustainable, better things and not only the cheapest. To enable this education, I have established a dye-plant garden together with a friend and architect in Leipzig / Germany. I've been experimenting and working between different disciplines. I'm convinced that working together with other disciplines is the best way for good ideas to arise. I am not "just" a designer - design gives me a framework to express myself.
