Swedish designer Sture Eng is behind the beloved CondeHouse classic, DARBY. He said, “It’s difficult to talk about a design philosophy because it’s like talking about how to think and work. I believe the process of my thought as a designer starts from open thinking, and it boils down to useful ideas. I sometimes start the process from sketching something, while I come up with good ideas to be a work plan with which I try to find suitable design languages to express a particular form. What I’m now interested in is to work on a model in the scale of 1:1 by hand to check dimensions, etc. I’ve been going on about my design philosophy, but what is most important is a relationship of trust with the production side that I cooperate with.”
