After many years working exclusively for external clients Gorazd decided to create his own platform for serious play in the field of furniture and lighting, pooling all his experience to curate a collection of signature products.
Gorazd likes to travel in the future. In the present he rarely misses a chance to show his designs at the world’s many design festivals. His design never settles for less than marvelous detailing, and always structures his trips in and around a meticulously tech-powered modus operandi. He knows his apps, enjoys his gadgets, and is known to complain over bad cocktails. He eats celery and cottage cheese in the morning, but never mixes the two in a single bite. With Gorazd it’s all very clear – very clear but never boring.
