Today we’re talking home design ideas with a twist. What if we told you, you could have flower-made furniture in your own home?

At this year’s Maison & Objet, in order to celebrate and pay tribute to creativity made in the UK, six UK-based designers were chosen to be featured on the panel of the Rising Talents. Each and every designer was unique and outstanding on his own. However, there was a project by one of them – Marcin Rusak – that caught our attention.

Inspired by his own family history as flower growers, the polish designer has long been fascinated by these natural sources of inspiration and decoration.

Engaging them in his creative process began by reusing waste to investigate new decorative elements within every day objects and led to a rich body of work ranging from research and storytelling to cultural criticism around consumption and future scenarios.

The designer and maker faces a great challenge, however: he works with both flowers and resin. The thing is: flowers are filled with water, and resin requires very dry materials to be effective.

Nevertheless, what Rusak accomplishes are stunning unique pieces, filled with details that are never the same, because every piece is one of a kind.

The great thing about Marcin is that he “embodies the philosophies of Art Nouveau in a contemporary context”. It is “through a strong personal aesthetic that the rising talent embraces a total approach to art in order to reevaluate objects and their significance to us while celebrating the organic outcome of natural materials and processes.”

Marcin Rusak was born in 1987 Warsaw, Poland. Nowadays the designer lives and works in London.

According to his own website, Rusak “situates his work at the intersection of value, ephemerality and aesthetics. He studies contemporary patterns of consumption, industry methods of manipulation, and the complicated systems we support. In his pursuit of authenticity, Marcin creates work that asks questions, references history and proposes possible future scenarios. Utilizing the power of materials, volume and form he moves fluidly from decorative art objects to sculptures, two-dimensional work and back again each time with a story as his guide.”
