The studio of Nikolai Kotlarczyk extends across interior product design – from decorative pieces to more industrial focused work. What unites his work is a geometric sensibility based around the design elements of symmetry and balance, along with references to historical and geographical ingredients – most predominantly architectural.
His body of work aims to simplify the act of storytelling through an honest palette of materials, and expression in bold forms.
Aiming to simplify and present these references in a contemporary way, Kotlarczyk’s work often contains a sense of nostalgia within a style that is refined yet, decorative.
His studio approaches the importance of sustainability in contemporary design through a combination of quality craftsmanship, durable natural materials, and a unique design language to create work that does not contribute to a throw-away culture.
