Marcin Rusak was born in 1987 in Poland, but lives and works in London where he creates his art furniture.
Marcin Rusak situates his work at the intersection of value, ephemerality and aesthetics. He studies contemporary patterns of consumption, industry methods of manipulation, and the complicated systems we support. In his pursuit of authenticity, Marcin creates work that asks questions, references history and proposes possible future scenarios. Utilizing the power of materials, volume and form he moves fluidly from decorative art objects to sculptures, two-dimensional work and back again each time with a story as his guide.

His collection of furniture and lighting is made by encasing flowers in resin, then cutting the blocks to reveal the petals inside. This characteristic turns each piece unique and irreverent. Rusak developed the Flora collection after two years of research into his combined interests in nature and materials.
He began by exploring how he could use flowers to create durable and valuable products.
Marcin has a background in both humanities and art programmes such as Man and Living at the conceptual Eindhoven Design Academy, Netherlands as well as receiving an MA in Design Products from London’s Royal College of Arts. Recently Marcin has been awarded the Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon Prize for emerging artists.
