For this collection I focussed on integrating natural materials in which the fragile feeling I was looking for was already present. Fragileness and tenderness are characteristics of each living organism in nature. When animals and plants die, they leave behind matter which still reminisces of their beauty. I started applying these materials and shapes in my work. When designing, I always started with one specific object around which I tried to weave a story by combining it with other materials, colours and text.

This collection was presented in gallery Hipotesi in Barcelona in may 2008.
