Mission

As a designer, I think promoting this (quote above) is not just a task, but a mission in society. After years at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) visual communication department and then in the advertising industry, I realized that our finite planet could not serve the current social structure indefinitely. That's when I decided I didn't want to go against my principles any longer, that I had to break out of the vicious circle and do things I believe in - and to do all this to help promote an eco-conscious lifestyle.

Vision

For me, to create is to search. I strive to design in a way that does not harm my environment. The moment, the given object and its potential are always the leading force. This is also the main philosophy of gobi.design - the brand aims to combine environmental thinking with a love of design. My vision is for everyone to receive the gifts of a healthy environment on an equal footing, which will then lead to sustainable daily living. This task is both a gift and a huge responsibility, but this is the way how change can be achieved.

Objects

The objects of gobi.design are part of a natural cycle. Inspired by the trends of upcycling, hygge, wabi-sabi, slow living, degrowth and the like, where the objects do not disappear, they just continue to be shaped by various subtle or harsh forces. I try to use as much natural materials as possible. I work with them using traditional techniques (eg Yakisugi - Japanese technique of preserving wood with burning). Objects include furniture and home accessories, but they have one thing in common - each one is salvaged from waste.
