Patrycja Domanska is a polish born designer, based in Vienna, Austria. She graduated with mention in the department of Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in 2009.
In 2011, she established her Design Practice, where she works on her own projects as well as for clients, often in cooperation with other designers, she holds in high regards. In the same year she had even two important exhibitons, that pushed her further onto the international design stage. She was invited to do her first solo show with "Passionswege" during the Vienna Design Week, which was directly followed by the presentation of 'homage to karl' being part of the group exhibition 'The Great Viennese Café: A Laboratory' at the Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK) in Vienna.
In her work Patrycja Domanska observes the social change, pulls inspiration from cultural backgrounds and questions conventions and taboos. She puts out her projects without shyness to new contexts and checks their topical relations often by the means of conceptual studies. The search for the secret and undiscovered is carried out by these experiments already directly on the object and translated into timely product ideas.
During the last years her projects have been showed at diverse design shows and were published by numerous magazines, design blogs and books.
