Trained as an architect, Westman’s transition to design was driven by a desire to focus on the shapes, colors, and objects themselves. Drawing inspiration from the Memphis Group of the 1980s, known for its rebellious approach to modernism, Westman’s work embraces unorthodox materials and whimsical patterns, creating pieces that are both visually striking and conceptually intriguing.

One of Westman’s signature pieces is the Curvy Mirror, which has garnered acclaim for its playful yet sophisticated design. Inspired by the works of Jean Royère and Ettore Sottsass, the mirror is just one example of Westman’s ability to blend artistry with functionality, creating objects that are as delightful to look at as they are to use.
