James Irvine in BersoAntik!

James Irvine is a famous British designer who founded his own design studio in Milano. All his works of art are real wholeness and conciseness. There is a feeling that Irvine always follows the main idea: to create things for the people and not for the marketing. Absolutly non-trivial design goes together with lines simplicity and functionality.

"I try to create the things that are not subject to the marketing influence, art objects for everyone. And I explain it very easily: My clients are people and not industry.

"Pay priority of your attention to the things meaning. Don't think too much how to be famous because money won't make you happy. The biggest value is your freedom from everything and everyone."
