Statement

Lavian design is influenced by the raw materials surrounding him. He creates new worlds from the limited resources and finds tremendous wealth in the soil, the rotting logs, wasp's nest, branches of the trees, broken objects, old plastic bags. It can be anything. He refers to the material and not to the object, studies it, understands its properties and uses it to create small but complete scenes of staged nature, ex-wild. He believes that through design - as a tool - we can make a change, make a difference, affect people.
