Nika Zupanc

Nika Zupanc graduated with distinction from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana in 2000. Since then she has gained a sterling reputation for a body of work that in her own words, “challenges the rational, sober and utilitarian by giving voice to the intuitive, eclectic and intimate”.
In the recent year, Nika has designed extraordinary pieces for Sé (collection recently awarded with Editors award for furniture at ICFF in New York), for the Japanese brand Francfranc, for Dutch design brand Moooi. She also made a Room of One‘s Own for Esprit Dior and designed the atmospheric As Aperitivo bar in her home town Ljubljana. Nika’s pieces carry an emotional charge as well as being exquisitely finished, which is why Elle USA defined her work as “punk elegance”. 
As for Nika, explanation is unnecessary. Her visual language comes from deep within and is about "communicating the things that cannot be told.”
