Dzek creates original architectural products guided by nature. Our materials are developed in collaboration with designers, architects and material scientists with radical perspectives on resources and design systems that complement and challenge our own points of view.
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 advance future possibilities. We aim to create products with artistic significance, and that allow architects and interior designers to forge meaningful new relationships between people and the spaces they occupy.

A dedication to design, an interdisciplinary approach and a reverence for craft traditions are at the heart of what we do. We would love to hear from you if these values resonate with you.
Formafantasma's Cambio exhibition at Serpentine Gallery, London
'Formafantasma: Cambio' opened Wednesday, 4 March 2020 at the Serpentine Gallery, London.
Formafantasma dissected the entire wood industry as both a case study for reimagining established manufacturing methods and a larger commentary on design’s role during an era of environmental crisis. Cambio derives its name from the Latin word cambium, 'change, exchange', and references the membrane that envelops tree trunks and produces wood and bark, as well as encompassing the project’s aims and research objectives.
The exhibition guide as well as a thought-provoking conversation between Formafantasma and Dezeen are availble online by clicking here.
