Dzek creates original architectural products under slow design principles in collaboration with designers such as Formafantasma and Max Lamb. We are globally recognised by architects and designers for taking a critical approach to resources, local cultures and design systems that yield unique material outcomes. This approach attracts a range of clients who not only use our products but also seek our guidance in developing bespoke, project specific materials guided by the same rigorous criteria.

We work on a variety of scales, studying and reinterpreting traditional craft processes and industrial manufacturing to transform raw materials into useful products suitable for architecture and design. This transformation is led by experimentation and our desire to understand the behaviour of elements under conditional influence rather than working towards specific aesthetic outcomes.

We believe that great architecture is made from elements that tell a story about their time and place. Through these stories we can peel back the layers to reveal the true value of things. Our approach to making respects the achievements of the past while aspiring to meet the challenges of the environmental crisis.


We work with architects, designers, luxury brands and property developers to create project specific architectural materials and products. We’ve supported our clients through a range of activities that include concept, research, fabrication guidance and execution, and defining cohesive narrative structures that are brand consistent. Get in touch with us for further information.

We are dedicated to radical design approaches that challenge our relationship to natural resources and can create something both useful and meaningful for architecture and space. The easy path never quite suits us. We would love to hear from you if you identify with any of this.


Christien Meindertsma: Re-Forming Waste at the Victoria & Albert Museum

As part of the Victoria & Albert Museum's 'Make Good: Rethinking Material Futures', Christien Meindertsma was invited to present some of her research exploring the creative applications of linoleum and wool. Christien proposed to make a solid and local linoleum as a building material that is re-pliable at its end of life. Her research is about making linoleum three-dimensional rather than a sheet material, and proposes to make linoleum from local, non-extracted materials; Linseed oil from local flax farmers, wood dusts that are a byproduct from local furniture industry and woodworking companies, chalks that are a by-product from drinking water production. The exhibition is located in Furniture, Room 133 of The Dr Susan Weber Gallery and runs until 19 October 2024.

International Creatives for Ukraine

Poland-based designer Marcin Rusak has rallied international creatives to donate work for auction in order to help raise funds for displaced Ukrainians. All proceeds fromt the auction will go to Poland’s Fundacja Ocalenie, (Rescue Foundation), a non-governmental organisation whose primary aim is to help refugees and migrants settle in by providing them with support on all fronts, from distributing housing, food and essentials, to paperwork assistance and integration with local communities. Since its founding in 2000, the foundation has helped people fleeing from Syria, Chechnya, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Belarus, and more.

We have donated a Marmoreal Side Table designed by Max Lamb and an ExCinere Coffee Table designed by Formafantasma. Please bid generously!
