Ewa Bochen, Maciej Jelski | Kosmos Project
Kosmos Project is a design studio set up by Ewa Bochen and Maciej Jelski. The designers studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and at the Politecnico di Milano. Having acquired their professional experience in the renowned Milan offices of Alessandro Mendini and Denis Santachiara, they have created a number of commercial and artistic projects, collaborating e.g. with Vitra and Paul Smith. The Studio’s projects have received numerous awards and been presented at exhibitions in London, Milan, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Tokyo, and New York.
Of paramount importance for the group’s work is a conceptual approach to design and overcoming stereotypical thinking about the object and material. The group’s portfolio includes such highly appreciated exhibition projects as: “Everything is Art to Me” at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Apostrof Empik Festival, “The Rebellion of Matter” at the Central Museum of the Textile Industry in Łódź, “Irrational Times” at The Form/Design Center, Malmo.
