In 2002, Designers' Days enabled him to continue exploring the theme of fibre-optic lights; and he designed a `micro-restaurant' for Lille 2004. Such projects lie at the very heart of his philosophy that a designer should be able to contradict himself, and not be held to his originally-chosen course. Whereas some may place a great deal of importance in theory, he holds the object in a much higher regard. This philosophy is the basis for his creations for the Carte Blanche for VIA, and his works for Cappellini, Domeau & Peres and Ligne Roset.
