Danuta first encountered the bulthaup product in her native Poland. Ten years after qualifying with an MA in Furniture and Product Design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, she is one of the key members of the bulthaup London Team.
Danuta's early experience was as a photo stylist for an interior design magazine, before later co-founding an online shop aimed at providing 60s era style furniture and simultaneously working on residential interior design projects.
Purity of forms and clean lines of Japanese styles and the creative space solutions of Daniel Libeskind's architecture dominate her sympathies. Contemporary influences feed from art and design exhibitions while urban graffiti, street performances and East London walks all add to her perspective.
Danuta pinpoints the award-winning Kings Cross St Pancras design she contributed to as the most outstanding. She appreciates the exceptional building features, multi-functionality and unique scale of the project.
Definitive on what she sees as the uniqueness of the bulthaup product, Danuta says:
"It's about flexibility, creating extreme visual effects in large beautiful spaces, while optimising storage within small kitchens. And it's about always being ahead of the market, without compromising the quality of the finished product."
For Danuta, future design will see advanced technologies of senses and touch come more into play, receding traditional operating methods.
