This week, Milan played host to the Archiproducts Design Awards for the third year in a row, and once again, Croatian design signed by Josipa Maras emerged victorious. The Zitna polje wallpaper, designed by Studio Brand, won the title for the most beautiful finish at the prestigious competition.
Josipa Maras is a visionary artist whose passion and dedication are woven into every piece of her work. Her award-winning wallpaper designs have adorned homes around the world, and her latest venture – a new design oasis in Zagreb – is set to further solidify her place as a leader in the international design industry. She expressed pride in the Zitna polje winning the title and emphasized the deep symbolism behind the design.
Each wallpaper is carefully designed and painted by hand, using only top-quality materials and production technology. What sets Studio Brand apart from its competitors is its focus on personalization, offering custom wallpapers that cater to individual tastes and preferences. Last year, they took this personalization one step further by putting their entire production process under one roof at their new Croatian wallpaper factory, Studio Boutique Factory. This move has allowed them to streamline their operations and offer an unparalleled level of quality control throughout all stages of production.
Josipa Maras expressed gratitude for the award and highlighted the importance of pursuing dreams, seeing it as proof that even small countries like Croatia can make an impact in the world of design. The three years of winning Archiproducts Design Awards are a testament to Studio Design’s excellence, with an expert jury recognizing their innovation, aesthetics, and sustainability. This success further cements Croatia’s promising future in the world of design.
