Our team consists of nearly 40 people, among whom are architects, interior architects, designers and managers. To ensure the highest quality in design, we form small, specialized teams for each new order, selecting creative designers from various fields. Cooperation with our clients is based on trust, mutual exchange of experience and joint investigation into innovative solutions.
Thanks to the versatility of our team, we are able to work both on a micro and macro scale. We take on designs of seemingly uncomplicated small items, such as a hinge for air conditioning devices as well as of commercial facilities with an area of several thousand square meters.
Working on opposite spectrums of design allow us to develop solutions holistically.

Repeatedly awarded for outstanding artistic and creative achievements by the Minister of Culture and Art, the Mayor of the City of Gdańsk and the Rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, He says about his inspirations: ‘I am fascinated by the works of anonymous designers-manufacturers. I am impressed by the simplicity and functionality of their products, unchanged in their logic and form for decades. These are the qualities that inspire me more than the latest trends in design. Following in the footsteps of anonymous creators, I am looking for clear structure and simple relations between the material, structure and function in the designed objects. What design is associated with – the form, I arrive at in the end, it is never a starting point for me, it is always a "culmination"’.
