A lecture of the Bydgoszcz Academy of Art
In this lecture, I present a subjective view of design from the perspective of a craftsman designer using primarily wood in his projects. I will present design examples based on the workshop experience as well as on material and technological knowledge. The presented projects, both by myself and selected designers, are characterised by a non-standard approach to working with wood. The blending of tradition and technology can lead to innovative solutions, and the lecture is about the irresistible urge to push the boundaries of one’s creative and technological abilities by working with one’s hands.
