Designer Sarmite Polakova

 

I am a designer, a material explorer and a storyteller.

I am fascinated by the relation between the human and the world around him. I believe we live in a bipolar era where mythical meets the anthropological and the mathematical - the inanimate. That is why I like to give new perspective to unused materials, forgotten knowledge and the uncanny in the ordinary. I want to add value by proposing new ways of thinking, producing and consuming in a way that doesn’t add to the amounts of trash around the globe.

Furthermore, I believe that each material, new or old, has its unique character and story to tell. That is why I design with the material without forcing it to become the standard.

I live and work in Amsterdam as well as in Riga
