This past week in Milan, Croatian design signed by Josipa Maras received the Archiproducts Design Awards for the third year in a row. The winning piece this year was the Zitna polje wallpaper, which helped cement Studio’s position as a leader in international design.
Behind this success is Josipa Maras, a visionary artist who has been creating award-winning wallpaper designs for years. Her passion and dedication are evident in every aspect of her work, from custom wallpapers that grace homes all over the world to her latest project – a new design center in Zagreb. She expressed pride in Zitna polje being named the most beautiful finish at the prestigious competition, highlighting the deep symbolism behind the design.
Each wallpaper is meticulously designed and painted by hand, using only top-quality materials and cutting-edge production technology. It was their personalized wallpapers that first put them on the map, and they have since expanded into a whole new industry within the realm of design. Last year, they brought all aspects of wallpaper production under one roof with Studio Boutique Factory, which now handles everything from conceptualization to manufacturing.
Josipa Maras thanked everyone for their support and emphasized that pursuing your dreams is key to success. Seeing her work recognized on an international stage serves as proof that even small countries like Croatia can make a big impact in the world of design. Over three years of winning Archiproducts Design Awards speaks volumes about Studio’s excellence and innovation in terms of aesthetics and sustainability. This achievement underscores Croatia’s bright future in the field of design.
