“My hand is the extension of the thinking process - the creative process.” Tadao Ando.
Iwona Kosicka: I primarily design applied arts, I create furniture, lamps, textiles and fashion. I take photographs, paint, design logos as well as websites. I run an original concept in Wroclaw and on the internet: Studio SKUP. The first place of such kind with craftsman works and artists, who create collections designated for an individual recipient. You can order there objects manufactured exclusively for you and solely in Poland. It is the meaning of the word craftsmanship that I want to restore in the consciousness of the consumers by the Studio. The word, that is commonly regarded as old-fashioned, hides high work culture, unique skills and unusually gifted persons. I generally spend free time close to nature: with a good book and healthy cuisine. Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Interior Design and Industrial Design. Best dissertation at the Department of Interior Design.
