In 2008 she returned to her native Paris, where she opened her first design studio. Victoria is passionate about design work: "I love the design process and seeing that translated into the final product. I love workshops, organization and atmosphere. I like to see how far I can take different techniques to come up with something new."
For this reason and the way she plays with volume and spaces, taking away material and polishing surfaces to achieve different structures, feel and light effects, her work is compared by some observers to that of a sculptor.

Mineralartificial Walking - a statement:
"The principal message of my project will be to present a natural material in a way that it has never been shown before. I have chosen this theme because I feel very drawn to stone and marble. It is a commonly used material, which I use in my own work as a designer. But I have never applied it to the floor, and I find it very interesting to ignore the material’s normal areas of application, which are generally very traditional. I shall try to present stone and marble in a different way – I’d like to change the direction and the normal way it is used."
