Perna’s approach to design goes beyond aesthetics. He believes that designers should concern themselves with the evolution of humanity - the way people think, live and feel. Perna has long recognized that design has the capacity to make an individual feel as though they live in a time of great thought and respect for their fellow humans.
A quality of life, design has the potential to change our emotional state, the way we think, and choose to live.
