Ivan Kasner believes that every generation deserves its own decor: products enabling people to feel at home in their own time.
People find it increasingly important to know where their products come from. They value quality and sustainability, which are important pillars for me as well. Aesthetics are essential, they are your first connection with a product, but the story behind it also plays a role in the choice you make.
The interior design of a home or office tells a lot about the person who spends his or her time there: it is a reflection of someones personality which becomes more and more visible through social platforms, says Ivan Kasner
