Anna creates playful and conceptual products with a focus on storytelling. "My childhood dream was to become a cowboy or a fighter pilot. A little later it was to become a world famous ballet dancer. For some weird reasons these dreams did not materialize, yet I feel like I am living my dream every day. Objects of all sizes and shapes captivate my imagination. All things weird and grotesque are a constant source of inspiration and the experience of seeing a rough sketch on a piece of paper turn into a completed work of design, is magical to me every single time. From the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep my mind is at work, reshaping everything I see and touch."
