Marta Bakowski’s designs are a celebration of colours and materials, two predominating elements which are often the starting point of her projects. Her objects follow simple & graphical shapes with an Elementary functionality, thus leaving room for tactility & expressive qualities while encouraging imagination, interpretation and appropriation.
By working with dualities and de-contextualisations, her designs are a game of oppositions, contrasts and hijacks. Thus, natural materials meet with technological ones, Crafts flirt with Industry and primitive inspirations transform into pop and modern translations.
For the designer it is a matter of elaborating a language thanks to which objects acquire a function that goes beyong practicality. By creating links and strong evocations through the development of aesthetical values, her aim is to touch the ‘emotionnal’ and encourage relationships between users and object.
