Home Truths

Living Etc - - HOMES ⁄ ETC -

Phrase you say most of­ten dur­ing the day? ‘Why is ev­ery­body so se­ri­ous?’

What did you want to be when you grew up? An ar­chi­tect – al­most suc­ceeded!

Favourite city? Bangkok - vi­brant, con­tin­u­ously chang­ing, al­ways in­ter­est­ing.

What will we never hear in your home? ‘Don’t touch that!’ If your chil­dren grow up with spe­cial things, they will ap­pre­ci­ate art and de­sign.

De­signer you most ad­mire? Mar­cel Breuer.

His Bru­tal­ist build­ings and rat­tan fur­ni­ture both feel in­cred­i­bly con­tem­po­rary.

And artists? Fran­cis Ba­con and Al­berto Gi­a­cometti opened my eyes when I was young, with their dam­aged com­po­si­tions.

How do you switch off from work? At the mo­tor rac­ing track; I put on a hel­met and fo­cus.
