Katarzyna Borkowska and Tomasz Pydo … This is designer duo. They design and manufacture and sell their products. The products are exhibited in different fairs and design weeks. Last time we saw them in Ambiente Fair. This week they will be in‘Less’ exhibition in Poland.
They work together in many areas including furniture, ceramics, glass, lighting, packaging, branding and other. In these projects they depend on customer needs. The most important thing is functionality for them. They take inspiration from observation of the environment, people and their behavior. They are looking for problems that we can solve and we try to find a new perspective for product.

Wrappie, designed by Pydo, is a lamp whose height can be freely adjusted thanks to a long cable wrapped around a ceramic tube. Materials used in the lamp have been used to the fullest– multi-functional cable supports the lamp, adjusts its height and, coupled with noble ceramics, serves an aesthetic function by creating an interesting structure around the shade. The lamp is characterised by the frankness of the material used and a rough form, which are directly related to its function.
