Nika Zupanc’s creations tell an elegant and refined story about the world of femininity, with a hint at the vintage curves in vogue in the 1950s and 1960s. Zupanc transforms poetry into design, introducing new elements and technological materials. She started attracting attention when she began working with Moooi and Moroso in 2008, but reached the turning point in her career with the “Lolita Lamp” – a rounded, retro lamp inspired by female archetypes, now her signature piece.
Zupanc’s projects always carry beautiful echoes of the past. Her “88 Secrets” series introduced pastel decor items with gold rims, reminiscent of hatboxes and the exquisite packaging of luxury products. Gold is a running theme in the designer’s creations: we find it in the precious cover of her “Golden Chair” for Moooi, and in her “Miss Dior Chair” for Esprit Dior, which has two golden bows to accent the back. Zupanc’s recognizable feminine and bold aesthetic recently earned her a mention in “Elle USA” for her “punk elegant” style.
