What inspires you?

I enjoy helping clients by talking through ideas and briefs with them, identifying the best products to suit their environment and seeing them installed. I find it enriching that you can make very small changes to an environment to enhance it, making it more inviting and useable.

For example, creating a cleaner environment by placing a bin in an area where people would normally throw rubbish on the floor.

Your favourite product and why?

The Arqua Fountain. I believe this product embodies Street Furniture values of continual improvement in product design, innovation and development.

I also love the Frame Planter. A strategic placement of these can instantly enhance an empty space in the public realm.
