Quote of Note | Inga Sempé

A pair of Sempé’s mattress-topped “Rouché sofas for Ligne Roset
“I’m proud to be difficult, if that is what I am. Because I don’t want to do bad work. The aim of a designer is not the same as the aim of a company. We have different aims, but we have to combine them. Sometimes designers have to ‘win’ more than the producer so the product is good enough. And so I think it’s normal to be difficult as a designer. In fact, usually I don’t think I’m difficult enough.”

-Industrial designer Inga Sempé
