Favorite place in the Euregio:
“Maastricht reminds me of my good years as a student. It is a very pleasant and very clean city. I also like to walk around, shop there, which often offer design and original products.”

What is your favourite design object (in your life/work/indoor)?

“My chilly’s bottle.

It’s a design object and more environmentally friendly, it allows me to stop buying plastic water bottles.”

I dream of this product or object and I hope to have it one day:

“A Banksy painting. I love his street art design and stencil paintings.”

I find this story/this business case inspiring:

“The history of Banksy artworks. Keeping your identity anonymous and being a global success is inspiring and mysterious at the same time. “

This is an inspiring book that everyone should read:

Ta deuxième vie commence quand tu comprends que tu n’en as qu’une Raphaëlle Giordano

“This book is a beautiful reflection on life that focuses on the conquest of happiness and our dreams.”

These are movies, TV shows, websites/links, podcasts that I liked
and I would have hoped that someone would tell me much earlier:

Au nom de la terreÉdouard Bergeon

“This is a film that highlights the excesses of the world of agriculture. Drifts that we are not necessarily aware of and yet it is such an important subject.”


These are to be followed online (instagram/linkedin/blogs/websites)

“The Tedx Talks,
I find these videos very exciting.
They always share an interesting idea or vision on a specific topic.

Simon Sinek’s video “The Golden Circle” particularly inspired me.”

This is an inspiring quote or beautiful motto:

The extraordinary lies on the path of ordinary people.

“Why make life complicated when it’s simple?”

What I wish the world

“Living in the greenest possible world and this is achievable by reducing our waste production or reusing it.”
