Baltic family

The designer at work

“The Baltic family is comfortable but does not feel detached from everyday life. On the contrary, its practicality is exceeding expectations making it your obvious choice for daily activities”
Krystian Kowalski

Sustainability plan

The manufacturing materials were selected with the natural environment in mind. Polypropylene can be easily obtained and reused from the recycled materials as well as the production waste. Both metal and wood used for manufacturing the shell chair components are well-known recyclable materials while the upholstery selection comprises several fabrics made from recycled post-consumer goods.

Comfort above all

Chairs in the Baltic collection were designed with comfort of use in different contexts in mind. All seats are practical and convenient, and variations with soft pillows upholstered in quality fabrics guarantee full relaxation.

Diversity and flexibility

The foundation of Baltic collection is the joining of wide ranges of bases and seats, providing chairs in series with a flexibility of use. The user chooses from elements of different functions and combines them freely with one another. This way, they are given the elastic possibilities to use the ready seating, from a functional conference chair up to a cozy relaxation spot.

Krystian Kowalski

As a hands-on designer my work process combines a full-scale models and prototypes with technology research and advance cad modelling. This methodical approach is focused on revealing the essence of each design. I believe experiencing the product is the only way to develop valuable furniture. Fundamentally I look at design as an exercise in creating value.
