In Milan, the heart of fashion and design, Croatian design signed by Josipa Maras has won an award at the Archiproducts Design Awards for the third year in a row. The latest winner is the Zitna polje wallpaper, which once again solidified Studio’s position as a leader in the international design industry.
At the core of this achievement is Josipa Maras, a visionary and artist known for her award-winning wallpaper designs. Her passion and dedication are evident in every piece she creates, from personalized wallpapers that grace homes worldwide to her latest project – a new design oasis in Zagreb. She expressed pride in Zitna polje being recognized as the most beautiful finish at the esteemed design competition in Milan, highlighting the deep symbolism behind the design.
Each wallpaper is meticulously designed and hand-painted with top-quality materials and state-of-the-art production technology. What sets Studio apart is their commitment to personalized wallpapers, which sparked a whole new trend in the world of design. Last year, they took their production process one step further by establishing Studio Boutique Factory, Croatia’s first wallpaper factory that brings together all stages of wallpaper creation under one roof – from concept to execution.
Josipa Maras expressed gratitude for the award and underscored the importance of pursuing dreams despite any obstacles. She sees this recognition as proof that small countries like Croatia can make a significant impact on the global stage of design. The three consecutive wins at Archiproducts Design Awards are a testament to Studio’s excellence, as confirmed by an expert jury acknowledging their innovative approach, aesthetic sensibilities, and sustainable practices. This success serves as a beacon of hope for Croatia’s future in the realm of design.
