Design or art hero: “Can I make a list like this is for a dating website?! My favorite contemporary artist is probably Wim Delvoye; my favorite old option is Henri Rousseau. My favorite designer is trickier. I like a lot of Atelier Van Lieshout. I would really liked to have met Eileen Gray (whose Bibendum chair is shown here). And I can’t not mention Gwen Stefani. I think her high/low/DIY/global-blend sensibility has had a big effect on me.”
