Born in 1988 in Rzeswów - Lives in Warsaw, Poland

Nikodem Szpunar (Born in 1988 in Rzeswów, Poland) – designer, graduate of Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, studied also at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. He designs furniture and interior design items for both industrial and short-series production. In addition to cooperation with the industry, he creates paintings made with his own technique.

He was awarded in Good Design (polish award), International Furniture Design Award in Asahikawa (Japan), Make me! and Must Have. He received the title of Designer of the Year 2019 from Arena Design and Designer of the Year 2021 from the Polish Institute of Industrial Design.

You could see his design at international fairs, exhibitions, and industry events from Berlin, Milan and London to New York, Hong Kong and Japan.

He has been exhibiting his paintings since 2022. At that time, they appeared at the exhibitions in Poland, during the Łódź Design Festival, Targi Rzeczy Ładnych (Beautyful Things Fair) and in the Michał Torzecki Studio and City Gallery BWA in Bydgoszcz.

His collaboration with creative agencies and cultural institutions has led to a multitude of exhibition projects that have transcended traditional design boundaries. These partnerships have allowed Szpunar to expand his artistic expression beyond the functional and into the realms of the experiential and the abstract.

Szpunar's profound understanding of visual perception showcases a hypnotic interplay of lines that creates a moiré pattern, engaging the viewer in a visual dance. This abstract composition, likely rendered in black on a white canvas, reveals his ability to manipulate space and form to generate a sense of movement and depth on a two-dimensional plane.

With his art, Nikodem Szpunar invites us to question and appreciate the seamless blend of form and function, the tangible and intangible, and the industrial and individual. His work is not merely to be viewed but to be experienced, as it holds a mirror to the dynamism of contemporary design and the ever-evolving landscape of modern art.
