E.D.: What is your favourite example of the use of sustainable products in design?

D.E.: I would have to look back in time a bit. 100 years ago more or less everything was ‘sustainable’. It’s not rocket science. Cut down a tree, build a chair, look after it and pass it on for generations. A lot of new ‘sustainable’ projects feel a bit forced but I still admire the designers who do it…

E.D.: What design project would you never design and why?

D.E.: That’s a difficult question… I try to avoid making ‘pointless’ objects that people would throw away. Gimmicks.

E.D.: What you hope your current work will bring to people, humanity?

D.E.: I don’t have an agenda. I’m a designer, not an artist. One of my clients is a medical company who do products within orthopaedic rehabilitation. These are products that you hopefully will never see but they improve peoples lives tremendously. I like working with that.

E.D.: What invention would best improve your life?

D.E.: An external hard drive for my brain.

E.D.: Can you describe an evolution in your work from your first projects to the present day?

D.E.: I’m more inclined to use colors now than before. But I’m still a pretty monochromatic person…

E.D.: What couldn’t you live without?

D.E.: I’m not very demanding. All objects are replaceable.

E.D.: Finally, which 21th-century architects/designers/artists would you invite to a dream dinner?

D.E.: There are many. If it’s a dream dinner I might as well pick someone from the past. Adolf Loose maybe. At the American Bar in Vienna three months after the grand opening while it’s still new but the chef has learned his way around the kitchen.
