Paul, who are you and what makes you tick?
I've always been obsessive, hyperactive, wanting to know things. I'm not a scientist, so although the beauty in my work comes from chemical reactions and natural properties, I see it in a naïve way and get really excited, and try to spread that excitement. Scientists are really creative people; designers should be inspired by them.
I studied at the Royal College of Art in London, surrounded by different ways of discovering and making new things, which really helped. My first year after college was a struggle. I was making all my projects in my bedroom. Then suddenly I had an exhibition and it all grew very quickly.
