If you want to write a book, you have to read the classics. If you have not done this exercise of humility and explored the past, you are going through a difficult time. You have to confront yourself while respecting tradition. Especially in design. Thanks to our technological skills, on which we rely heavily, we have created very special products. We are looking for thrills. The important thing is to start from the idea of uniqueness. A good project is born because you have internalized the project and worked on something unique. We are looking for thrills. The important thing is to start from the idea of uniqueness".
