Gdyby group is a design studio established in Gdańsk, in 2013. Merging architecture, public space and construction, we created workshop that defines usable areas through a form of interference. Using our craft and passion, we try to refresh and improve common environment. During everyday work, we combine experience with a wide range of design disciplines such as industrial design, architecture, public space development, exhibitions and also graphics.
Our knowledge and skills allow us to create unusual design solutions, unique for each project. We are directly involved in both prototyping as well as production, making our work as personal and committed as it can be. Every collaboration is treated individually thus brainstorming always result in one of a kind scenarios and ideas. Our aim is to combine design and craft by doing most possible number of projects personally. It requires us to use broadly defined knowledge consisting of engineering, materials processing and also manufacturing.
Our name Gdyby translates into If and it inspires us to ask this question on a daily basis – what would happen, if? We try to smuggle the answer in our projects, mostly in an unconventional way. We believe that infiltration of architecture, culture and art is beneficial to our environment and creates an inspiring living space.
In 2014 we won 2013 Polish Landscape Design competition for a temporary installation on the Coal Market in Gdańsk. Our projects have been repeatedly published in Polish and foreign press.
We design for public and private institutions: museums, art centres, public administration units, theatres, event agencies and private companies.
