Krzysztof J. Lukasik, a designer hailing from Warsaw, Poland, and based in France, has designed a line of functional objects that nevertheless look more like works of art. Sculptural and even abstract at times, they are meant to be used in a workspace setting and not an art gallery. Yet one of the main reasons people might mistake Krzysztof J. Lukasik's designs for art is his choice of materials.
Relying solely on heavy materials including marble, granite and limestone, Krzysztof J. Lukasik works to rid such materials of their innate somber quality by rethinking their use. Although more often associated with funerals and monuments, Krzysztof J. Lukasik creates business card holders, trays and even a mirror.
