Dagmara Oliwa

Dagmara Oliwa is a Polish architect and designer, the owner of the brand FORMA CAPRICHOSA. She studied at the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Wrocław as well as at SKIBA school where she specialized in dance.

Dagmara Oliwa is an architect with over 20 years of experience, who has never lost her passion for her profession. Design is for her a form of self-expression and provides immortality of our ideas. It reaches everyone, because it surrounds us in everyday life. Now it is hard for her to imagine herself performing any other profession. She draws poetics from the sources, nature-based organicity, and build on the achievements of modern technology and new materials, operating light, subtle forms, but not devoid of dynamics...

Chair by Dagmara Oliwa

el ANIMALITO Chair by Dagmara Oliwa One day I started to look for answers to the question: How to design a chair that can meet the needs of individuals in a uniform modern world using a natural material such as wood? el ANIMALITO is just the answer. Its owner is personally involved in the creative process, deciding on the choice of materials, and thus manifesting it as they are. el ANIMALITO is a piece of furniture with character - it may be predatory and dignified, extravagant and expressive, quiet and subdued, crazy ... manifesting the nature of its owner. el ANIMALITO - a chair that can be tamed.

Table by Dagmara Oliwa

la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES Table by Dagmara Oliwa The table la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES is a search for poetry in design... A forest as seen from the ground is like columns fading away into the sky. We cannot see them from above; the forest from a bird’s eye view resembles a smooth carpet. Verticality becomes horizontality and still remains unified in its duality. Likewise, the table la SINFONIA de los ARBOLES, brings to mind the branches of the trees forming a stable base for a subtle counter top that challenges the force of gravity. Only here and there the sun's rays flicker through the branches of the trees.

Multifuncional complex by Dagmara Oliwa

Crab Houses Multifuncional complex by Dagmara Oliwa On the vast plain of the Silesian Lowlands, one magical mountain stands alone, covered in fog of mystery, towering over the picturesque town of Sobotka. There, amidst natural landscapes and legendary location, the Crab Houses complex: a research centre, is planned to be. As a part of town's revitalisation project, it is supposed to unleash creativity and innovativeness. The place brings together scientists, artists and local community. The shape of the pavilions is inspired by crabs entering rippling sea of grass. They will be illuminated at night, resembling fireflies hovering over the town.
