Which product has inspired you in 2019?  Some, not many, which have in the design core “dismantlability”. And adding more functions to a lighting equipment is a trend I personally like (acoustics, other electrical components, data transmission, etc)

Where was the most interesting place your job took you this year?  Tokyo…

Will Brexit happen?  I hope not!

What is your favourite Christmas song?  The ones my 4-year old is singing now… “ oh, Tannenbaum”

How do you say Merry Christmas in another language?  Feliz Natal, Frohe Weihnachten!

Do you prefer LED Christmas lights or the traditional incandescent bulbs?  I think I am more to LED nowadays…

Can you remember the job/course you were you doing 20 years ago?  I was at the architecture university and had taken a job as intern at a construction site, where I had my first contact with a lighting designer!
