Hans Wolbers’ can’t think of a favourite magazine or newspaper but one he misses is, Manipulator, isn’t in print anymore. He talks about his studio Lava Design, already 17 years running, and what defines it. Hans is a true generalist, another job for every day. Specialising bores him. Hans tells the story of how he could have been importing cars from India. He lives in the present too much to be a collector. His role in the studio allows him to travel a lot, for instance to Iran where he worked with designer Reza Abedini. He has no idea what Lava Design will be in 17 years from now. Nor how he would be like to be remembered.
