Description/

Interested in making processes and material investigation, Polish designer Marcin Rusak worked together with glass blowers in Czech Republic to create this sculptural statement piece, inlayed with flowers and leaves turned to ash during the glass blowing process. The patterns and shapes of the stems and petals are sealed in the glass, whilst the ash finish takes on a painterly quality. Rusak has exhibited internationally (e.g. Verbeke Foundation, Belgium, Toyama Museum of Art and Design, Japan, Victoria & Albert Museum, UK) and is the recipient of numerous awards; Mazda Award; AD Award; Wallpaper Award; Perrier-Jouët Salon Prize.


Marcin Rusak

designer

Marcin Rusak was born in 1987 in Warsaw, Poland. He holds undergraduate degrees in humanities from the University of Warsaw and in art from the Eindhoven Design Academy in the Netherlands, as well as an MA in Design Products from London’s Royal College of Arts. He currently works out of London and Warsaw.With an experimental practice that merges contemporary art and design, Rusak draws inspiration from theoretical research and philosophical inquiry as well as from explorations of material processes in the studio. Influenced by his family lineage as a third generation descendant of flower growers after his father and grandfather, he has developed signature techniques using plant flora as a striking decorative element within his work, preserving flowers and leaves in resin which are fused seamlessly into his thoughtful modern pieces. Each piece is unique, conserving the ephemeral shades and textures of petals and leaves, which float suspended in beautiful contrast with the smooth white, black or clear resin encasing them. Rusak is also adept at creating minimal designs in metal, carving materials to their bare elements to create elegant, rugged forms. In addition to his exquisite design furniture, Rusak produces artworks on silk using colorful flower pigmentation, resulting in simple and delicate pieces marked by bright natural abstract formations.
