JM told us about some of the latest projects he has been working on, including directing and producing a video for the new Noken (Porcelanosa Group) bathroom, designed by world renowned architect Zaha Hadid, whose designs included the London Aquatic centre that was used in the 2012 London Olympics and who sadly passed away earlier this year.

The video shows the main elements of the collection, which depict fluid sensual shapes embodied by water. Providing an elegant video that reflects the beautifully carved designs by Hadid, the project is a particularly personal one for JM. 

“The video shows the main elements of the collection, which use as a reference to the element of water to embody fluid sensual shapes. Hence the idea to show these objects are created, carved carefully by water, in an intimate, elegant and peaceful atmosphere.” said JM, when asked how he was inspired to create such a personal and intimate project.
