FORM Design Studio is widely recognized and admired for its sense of refinement and commitment to holistic living. The studio's work blends what is beautiful and what sustains, evolving the principle that "form follows function" so that neither leads nor follows; rather the relationship between the two is always harmonious, cyclical, and seamless. FORM Design Studio's founding partners are Emmy award winning designer Joshua Rose and once-Chinese medical practitioner Rafael Kalichstein.

I was living for a month in Rome. Outside of my studio window where I was living the view offered a pulsating rhythm that I could adapt into painterly marks.
I was able to play with color, shifting between architecture.
Just like jazz music takes melody riffs – playing with what is in sight and making it more personal and rhythmic, I was inspired to reintroduce imagery to my work.
