Design is thinking made visible. (Saul Bass)

Do you collect anything?

Yes, I collect The Little Prince books. Every country I visit I try to buy a copy of the book in the official language of the country. Sometimes there are even some versions in a local dialect - like Bavarian, Roman or Mayan - those are like pure gold to me.

What's one technology you'd like to invent?

A type of bag that would reduce the weight and size of the items you are carrying inside, but once you take them out they would recover their original size and weight. Traveling, moving and grocery shopping would be much easier.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

It would be tamales, a traditional mexican dish. They come in many different types and flavours - I could eat them forever without being tired of them.
