"I dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me. Right now I am working on a collection of furniture, a draft for a boat and more self-assembly lamps — we'll see if they get done".View other products by Simon Karkov
