Founded in 2013 by Maja Ganszyniec, the Studio focuses on furniture and products design for both home and public spaces.

It supports brands, creating design strategy and offering artistic supervision.

Maja Ganszyniec is a designer with a comprehensive approach to the design process. Born in Poland, she studied interior architecture in Cracow and in Milan before graduating in Design Product at the Royal College of Art in London in 2008.

„Do no harm” is her main professional principle. In 2013 she established her own studio, focusing on human-oriented and nature friendly objects.

The designer always looks for opportunities to implement sustainable solutions, be it in details or in a holistic production approach. She often chooses traditional craft, to underline the value of natural materials used in furniture. Maja promotes the circular production model, to increase the use of recycled materials, as natural resources are scarce and must be used wisely.

Her collaborations range from huge companies with world-changing capabilities to small family businesses that can create a piece of a whole new world from scratch. For the last decade she has collaborated with brands like IKEA, DUKA, Comforty, Mute or Noti. In 2017 the Polish Institute of Industrial Design awarded her with the Designer of the Year title.

In 2020, she was appointed as a Creative Director of Profim – leading office furniture manufacturer in Poland and one of brands of the Scandinavian Flokk Group. She is also an owner and founder of an independent furniture brand Nurt.
