He is renowned for his long-standing designs for venerable art fairs, such as TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) in Maastricht, the Netherlands, Art Basel Miami Beach, USA, Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland, Design Miami Basel, Switzerland, HIGHLIGHTS - International Art Fair Munich, and the World Watch and Jewellery Show Baselworld, halls 3, 4, and 6, Basel Switzerland.
