A set of objects showing the blacksmithing craftsmanship. The tray highlight the contrast. The smoothness, purity and simplicity of its form meets with irregular, rough structure. It’s an idea to emphasize and appreciate the work of blacksmiths, where strong, heavy movements can create a extremely plastic, even sculptural structure.

Candle holder is made on the basis of the ancient technique of the grommet (punching) manufacturing, ie. a connecting element which not require a welding. The fragment of the cylindrical rod is flattened into a rectangular form, and then by the punch tool a hole is made. Thanks to this process the material is ‚pushed out’ sideways, resulting in a thickening around its central part.


The trivet pot shows the versatility of steel, combined with the high skills of the blacksmith, its unlimited possibilities of modeling and shaping. In the manufacturing process, the square bar is forged into the desired triangular form and then bent into an elliptical or circular shape.


MANUBA GDD Collection is a series of products created especially for the Gdynia Design Days Festival. The main idea is to recover the forgotten crafts. Each product is a result of a designer’s collaboration with a craftsman. Apart from the final effect, the exchange of experiences between the designer and a master craftsman is significant.

More than just keeping you on time.

„When we look at clocks, we see more than just the time. Whether it’s a big wall clock in your kitchen or an alarm clock by your bed, they reflect your style and help complete your home. And getting a new clock is easy and affordable too, when you feel it’s time for a change” – Ikea of Sweden

Sitting at our desks we focus purely on productivity. We disconnect from our bodies, becoming faster, more effective and cost-efficient as our brains become detached from physical constraints. In our search for work optimisation we are leaving our bodies behind.


Balancing Act forces the user into immediate awareness of the corporeal, bringing to the fore the dynamic and tension of individual muscles. Drawing on Eastern exercise practices, the object demands the user to take control and command it with their own body.


The act of balancing becomes a performance art, a relationship between the body and the object that constantly evolves. The design provokes users to rethink our culture of physical passivity, reconnect with our bodies and embrace active rest.
