"Internationally recognized as one of today's most important and pioneering landscape and interior designers, the Dutch designer Petra Blaisse continues to define new and increasingly ambitious roles for landscape and interior design. In contrast to architecture's static and immutable severity she devises flexible and flowing solutions that interconnect interior and exterior. Her designs are often poetic and colourful, but they consistently provide astute and elegant solutions to complex technical problems" from www.naipublishers.nl
