Design point of view: I get inspired by designs that consider the vulnerable and empower users. I love minimalistic designs that rely on neutral colors with some boldness and character. I also love designs that are sustainable, particularly as designs are in harmony with nature, where we use local materials in designs.

How this fits? I love designs by the company Ibuku, founded by Elora Hardy. I absolutely think that these designs use bamboo and natural materials – something that I value. What I love most about these designs are the simplicity, using local materials (sustainability), and challenging the community’s point of view (through using bamboo which is often associated with “poorer” homes).
