CZAJKOWSKY

We are a Poland based design studio that creates exceptional residences and interior spaces. The designs we produce are not formulaic or style driven but are derived from measured principles – and that’s what makes us different. 

 

OUR APPROACH

Our design is built on foundations derived from first principals. History, geography and the vernacular of the architecture tell us where to begin – they’re the true story tellers. Although we like to keep things expressive and work to that approach, every project will benefit from the application of strategic thinking and a highly structured framework. 

Once coupled with the client’s needs, no matter how challenging, our unique approach will start to thread together a story, going beyond just style, to deliver sophisticated design on a superior level. 

We create beautiful spaces, but we also create so much more than that. We believe in the detail, and subtly weaving that detail into a design. The narrative may not be immediate or obvious, but when you do discover it, it becomes clear why we approach interior design in this way – you’re presented with something timeless. 

OUR PEOPLE

We understand design, but we also understand the importance of people. We provide a diverse and multi disciplined team that gives us the expertise to push boundaries for clients who want to achieve the truly extraordinary.

Working as an interior designer I constantly try to fulfil my clients’ needs. Like most of us I am overworked and usually very busy, everyday is a hustle. I constantly crave for creative challenges. For 10 years I have been participating, among other artists, in building and designing Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi. This experience was always metaphysical to me. Before I believed that the piece of art must last to exist. It’s different with Ice Hotel. Artists’ works simply melt down after a few months and flow into the river turning full circle and creating a platform for new creative work. Thanks to this experience I realised the importance of the creative act and how it is influenced by artist’s personality. 
 

At the beginning of the pandemic I read Winston Churchill’s biography to find out that he had painted landscapes everyday until his death. I realised that for 15 years I have not drawn anything for my personal pleasure. Even though drawings are at the heart of my ccupation(only recently the act of drawing was made obsolete by modern software). 
I got back to the source of my fascination with drawing. As far as I remember portraits have seemed to me the highest form of drawing. During my school years I was portraying kids in park for a small fee. It all changed. In the last year I created dozens of portraits and gave them to my friends and colleagues. Drawing gives me unmeasurable pleasure, it allows me to disconnect from reality. Drawing for the drawing itself is a very refreshing act during which I am not concerned with its market value or even recognition in the eyes of the model. 
 

At the moment I play with colours. I experiment a lot and observe the evolution of my drawing. I am also grasping the idea that each finished portrait, an ice room, an interior or furniture design is a form of self-portrait. That’s because we, artists, all wish to be immortal in our creations.
