Studio Libertiny’s designs are a result of curiosity and investigation of nature, technology and science. We innovate and experiment with new technologies and crafts and translate them into functional objects, poetic statements or future concepts. In collaboration with a talented group of individuals we realise projects where power of context and innovative approach in materials and building technologies is crucial. Studio Libertiny is set on realisation of design projects for a wide range of clients, collectors and institutions. Past clients include such as Louis Vuitton, FENDI, Christofle, Design Miami/Basel or Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Studio has collaborated with several established galleries such as MOSS New York, Galleria Rossana Orlandi, FUMI, Perimeter Art and Design and Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
