 "I became an aquarium designer to share my fascination with nature and its infinite sources of inspiration!
For me, using the medium of nature is the purest form of artistic expression.

 I created ViDERE to bring aquarium design to mainstream, culture, to connect it with other modern and traditional art forms, redefining how people use their spaces.

Aquariums have a unique way of transforming an environment and connecting people to nature, this is why I do what I do. "
