All good things go by three. This time this also counts for interiors. It was the third time that the German Architectural Digest awarded designers with the ‚AD Design Award‘ in five categories: Modern Minimal, Arts & Crafts, Vintage Reloaded, Fast Forward and Self Designed Spaces. The category Arts&Crafts has caught our eye, as we love to follow the accelerating constant drive towards new inventions in designs. It is interesting to witness, how materials are taken out of their usuals context and how they are used in interiors. Do you remember this example of modern alchemy?
Fitting the mood of the season, today we want to introduce you to the Mystical Interior Objects by Marcin Rusak being the winner of the Arts&Crafts category.

Like for so many designers the roots for his creative background can be found in his childhood, where he started building tree houses and did lots of handicrafts. We are happy that his artistic evolvement includes experimenting with natural materials like flowers and resin.
In the very beginning he collects flowers, that are usually meant to be thrown away. What a gorgeous way to demonstrate sustainability – but this is just a thought… He intentionally looks for bright colors and blossoms with a great sculptural potential. And what an impression these blossoms make! After arranging the flowers in blocks, he pours resin into the form and the momentum of coincidence completes the process. Afterwards he cuts the blocks and arranges them to gorgeous interior objects like this Flora Screen or the Flora Coffee Table. Additionally the combination of raw aluminum or shiny brass and the black floral resin create a great contrast that challenges your imagination.
Architectural Digest calls him an artisanry pioneer and we can only agree.
