Roee believes design should be practical, striving for simplicity
He designs products that are desirable, fun.
Products that make you smile.
In his designs, he tries to use a recognized shape, feature or a small gesture which most people are familiar with as an inspiration, simplify it to its core, process it and implement it in a new context.
