  • My name is Maja. I was born in Katowice, a typical industrial region of Poland. This location strongly influenced on my way of thinking and designing. 

    My projects are simple and expressive. I base my work on the exact material research and a  personal intuition. And that approach has never let me down.

    I’m not afraid of experimenting. I really like to try new materials and methods of production. I focus on the process of design and try to show it in my works.

    Another very important influence on my work is humanism. 
    In my opinion psychology and anthropology are among the most important forces in the design process. 
    It is thanks to a deep knowledge of mankind and its ways that we are able to make useful and valuable works.

    I am an emotional, strong and energetic person. 
    I always identify with my projects and get involved with them. 
    Because of my intuition and a readiness to see the possibilities in anything new, I am fast in finding a solution to solve problems.
