Built with Berta.me

  1. I was seeking for aesthetics since I have memory. Surrounded by all the drawings of my father, I was always looking for my own way to express. It all started with drawing class for children and since then I've never stopped exploring. This brought me first to graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and now to work as an interior & product designer between Amsterdam and Warsaw.

    My points of view shifted throughout these years of practice, but my main ambition has never changed: making simple and harmonic designs that make life more beautiful. To achieve that, I think the best way to start a project is to create empathy with my clients.

    I am mostly dedicated to furniture. It's fascinating how their presence can influence our daily life from all the directions. I believe that attention to details is the key to create something both timeless and functional.
