“Today the greatest challenge a designer have, is not how to create beautiful products, but instead to inspire and influence across generations, how to re-think, re-conceptualize and re-create the design process in order to create a sustainable future. The environmental crises, demands an urgent transformative change. With J Dauphin I want to inspire how to promote a sustainable lifestyle and relationship with the environment. I always had a heartfelt commitment to be an advocate for high quality and longterm thinking. I see the "constant search for excellence as a fundamental principle for how to maximize: appreciation of goods, minimize waste and ultimately change consumer behavior. Today we are transforming the way we do business and are first and foremost always using what already exists on the market, buying vintage and dead stock materials of all that we can find vintage but always maintaining the highest quality possible."
