DEEP BLUE - Cloak Cabin

Our designers decided to visit the exhibition. And to be honest - we do not regret it. It was exciting! 

At every step, our eyes met on something new, innovative and unique. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to look at the design with a "fresh eye".
Everything was intresting. But as it always happens, some projects we liked more than others. Few of them stay in our memory for longer. One such project, which had a big impression on us is an original piece of furniture by Emmy Derwin Fox of New Zealand. We mean an amazing dresser called Cloak Cabin.
The furniture turned our attention primarily by its unusual color. Sharp, dark blue color delighted not only us, but many others visitors. Besides this, it charmed us with its simple, ut still modern form. The designer decided to limit for maximum ornamentation of furniture and used only straight line and shapes. All these treatments have made this piece of furniture a humble piece of equipment and a work of art in itself at the same time.
But above all, the most impressive is functionality of this furniture. With the walls, which can be easily dismantled, we ourselves create the final form of our furniture. We can completely shut it down, or create open fields, which will give a touch of lightness to this furniture. As designers we appreciate such creative solutions that allow users to petty interference in the surrounding area.

We look forward to the next creative ideas of this amazing designer and we will certainly continue to follow her career. Or maybe you have seen recently some interesting others projects? We are waiting for the info!

Meadow CARPET - In the middle of winter you can sense the spring

Meadow CARPET - In the middle of winter you can sense the spring.

Collection NATURAL naturally refers to SEDUM SEBOLDII series. It is a new approach to detail. In this way lamp, carpet, and stool pads and dining pads have been invented. Its all made with natural materials: wool felt and plywood. It is neither painted nor dyed – just natural. Of course, my motto is to combine craft with cutting-edge technologies, therefore I utilized CNC milling machine and oscillating knife plotter, afterwards there was only handcraft.

Collection CARPET and POUF are handmade on weaving frame. She used natural felt and wool to make it . Every element – flower was made with oscillating knife plotter subsequently it was strung on cord to create a fringes. Next she join it together with warp like in traditional carpet. Carpet was weaved in one piece, but pouf was made of many smaller pieces joined into big one. The inspiration to do this collection was perennial – stonecrop Sedum Sieboldii. Its shape and colour intrigued me so far.

Felt is really multipurpose material therefore what she used it to  project. Combination of nature and natural material is perfect one! It was really hard but finally really satisfying job.

And we look forward to another interesting application projects.

Tic Tac Toe - carpet

It is time for the next article about inspiring designers. Today we would like to introduce you to Dominika Zientek, which has truly changed our view on the carpet's subject. 

She is a Polish designer who inspired by Bialystok's weaving tradition has decided to design and manufacture series of handcrafted, mass produced, modern carpets and jacquars fabrics. 
The entire collection of carpets  was made by synthesizing a wide variety of designs. As she said as, "the main role in her projects is connection between new technologies and traditional craftsmanship". Woolen yarn and textural surface make geometric composition.

 Jacquard fabric has been woven into jacquard hand-loomed doubled warp. The result is a double fabric, where the rear part is the reverse of the front side. 

A characteristic feature of Dominicas works is a consequence of the pattern. 

All fabrics are decorated with geometric shapes. We can observed many repeated squares - based systems, rectangles and lines of different thicknesses. In addition, the fabric is characterized by saving color. A significant part of the carpet is decorated with patterns based on the contrast of black and white statement. 

Others are made with a single, natural color, usually gray, where the main role is played by texture and orientation of strands.

In our view, the work of Dominica are simply beautiful. Their simplicity and consistency of pattern refer to the idea of contemporary art and architecture. These carpets will undoubtedly become a wonderful addition to any modern interior. With its choice of colors their will harmonize with other elements of equipment in most areas.
Here are a few of the projects Dominika Zientek . Behold and admire!

Why "August"?

Today we would like to continue our series of articles about contemporary designers who inspire us with their creativity. We would like to present to you the work of Olga MilczyƄska and Iryna Grishina, who together, as a duo called "August", create really beautiful ceramics. 

Why "August"? As designers themselves explain, they are both huge fans of Mr August Sander, a photographer from the end of the nineteenth century, whose works were inspired by the human being and the material world. At the same time, August as a month represents for them patience, exploration of the surroundings, joy, and beauty, which are very important for Olga and Iryna. 

All of these together gave a name to their studio and defined their attitude to work. 
Olga and Iryna have been working with ceramics and photography for several years, and they gained experience while working in different countries such as Russia, Poland, England, France, Denmark, and Korea. 

Together they decided to create a project of beautiful and modern ceramics, which refer to traditional solutions at the same time. As they said, their goal is to "create beautiful, modern objects by using traditional techniques". 

They collaborate with craftsmen and always try to learn something new. 
Their works are characterized by gentleness and simplicity of form.
Interestingly, the girls do not focus exclusively on creating ceramic vasas, but also create other useful objects such as ceramic wall shelves, clay humidifiers or lamps.

And meanwhile, we salute those capable girls!
And we look forward to another interesting application projects.
