“In a world where we have everything we could wish for, memories are far more important than belongings. Considered Luxury captures a new way of living; a new consumerism in which value is placed on experience rather than possessions. Creating memories that are priceless is our priority as we look at the world with fresh eyes, not adding clutter but experiences instead.”Willeke Jongejan – Designer
