We met working together at the studio of Marcel Wanders, at a time when it had an almost electric atmosphere and ambition. From the beginning, we had a real creative click and realised that our thoughts and ideas were strongly aligned. We come from opposite sides of the world and both have quite different cultural backgrounds but our references and interests were surprisingly aligned from the beginning. We both find each other’s backgrounds a source of inspiration as well and, funnily enough, we learn to love the things we take for granted from our own background, as it’s an exotic source of inspiration for the other.
Now that we have been working together for some years, our minds are pretty synchronised and we often don’t need to say a lot to convey our thoughts. Slowly, we have formed our own language, processes and thinking. Rive Roshan has become this outlet of creativity for us, where we can freely create and share what we want.
