Bio
Product designer,specialized in sensory, social design and approaches "design + art". Scholarship and laureate of prof. Wanda Telakowska and the mayor of Bytom, this year nominated for the Dobry Design competition "The Best Designers below 30". Many times I collect ideas for projects by listening to people's needs and reflecting what they feel by real object. Through my projects i can give a voice to people who are not able to say what they need by themselves. For example, mentally burdened people, disabled people, nature.
