"I'm honored to have the opportunity to exhibit in Stockholm. I look forward to showing my sustainable furniture made from pliers along with other designers. I expect to be able create relationships, to be inspired, and to increase my knoledge of green materials and products. I hope to meet producers who will be interested in my work.
