“DIA had been on my radar for many years as a company that I really wanted to work with. The quality and craftsmanship of their work always impressed me, so it was very exciting to have them select my designs for the Tasco Console and Sesa Dining Table for our first collaboration.
They did a fantastic job executing these designs and the response from their customers has been great. To hear that it was one of the best new product intros DIA had ever presented was a great thrill for me. These designs were followed up by the Cirrus and Elios Table Collections and received the same level of enthusiasm from DIA customers. What a wonderful start to our design relationship! I feel a freedom of expression in designing with DIA that I haven’t felt with other U.S. clients. It is very rewarding to have that freedom met with such an overwhelmingly positive response from both DIA and their customers.
I’m very grateful to DIA for selecting my concepts for production, happy to be on the team, and look forward to our continuing collaboration.”
