Maciek is inspired to bring ‘vanished’ art and design technologies, inspiration, stimulation and influence, that previous generations took for granted, back into his studio.

Looks for inspiration in unexpected places, searching for intriguing content. Believes in drawing with pencils before bringing technology to the design concept.
