‘Design Meets Functionality’


This project is set to interpret the well-known almost archetypal shape of a dinner plate and to transform it into a series of domestic products. The result is a collection of functional objects for everyday life such as smoke alarm, clock and lighting feature. Those are things that people want and enjoy using, things that are made to last and to remain attractive for long.

Valerie’s most recent works focus on exploring objects that people are surrounded with, assessing their functional and aesthetical value. Interaction with everyday objects inspires her to rethink and redesign the familiar and transform it into understandable, functional and aesthetically pleasing products.

What can be changed in the way an object is perceived or used? Valerie experiments with a different approach to design of everyday products and explores how materials such as ceramics could increase their value.
