Maria Jeglińska

Maria Jeglinska was born in Fontainebleau in 1983. In 2010 she established her Office for Design & Research in London. She graduated from ECAL’s industrial design course in 2007 and was awarded a scholarship from the IKEA foundation that led her to work for Galerie kreo in Paris, Konstantin Grcic in Munich and Alexander Taylor in London. She works on a wide range of commissions: industrial design projects, exhibition design, as well as research-based projects in the field of design.

She is convinced that in today’s world, research can trigger and generate new forms of answers and offers.

Her work is regularly exhibited internationally and was shown at: the Villa Noailles, the Aram gallery, Barbican Art Gallery, Centre Pompidou Metz and the Triennale di Milano.



I created the Butterfly vase, which consists of a steel tube and aluminum wings attached to it with black screws. The form and construction details are an integral part of the vase. The form itself was to create a small architecture and background for flowers. I didn’t want the object to be completely symmetrical but to become a “space” for flowers.


Q: What does it mean that your work is “functional”?

A: I think that functionality is in the DNA of this profession and in every object that I design. All the items I create are useful in their own way. A vase, where the purpose is simple, often allows you to explore various ideas and forms.
