A Hole In One


I've love warpeDesign. Whenever I'm at a market, I find myself irresistibly drawn to her table. Here's an interview I did with Luise Stromberg, the creative force behind warpeDesign, for handmadeny.com aka the {NewNew} blog:

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Walking around some little Tuscan city in the spring sunshine with a gelato in hand, seeing ancient ruins, knowing there will be fabulous pasta for dinner.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing my hands or my eyesight

Which historical figure do you most identify with?
Urk.... none. They're famous. I'm not.

Which living person do you most admire?
I've been a big fan of Hella Jongerius ever since I saw her Repeat Collection for Maharam in 2002. She has a wonderful way of getting to the essence of an idea... and then turning it upside down or inside out. She does great designs that are both relevant AND fun.

Do you have a theme song, and what is it?
Not usually. But this winter I had Pandora set to Gwen Stefani radio and I just fell in love with Wind It Up and would chuckle maniacally whenever the Sound of Music yodeling came on.
