About Lukasz

I've started a new premium/luxury home decor brand "for the refined child" called Junior Monarch (www.juniormonarch.com)

I am currently the creative director of urbanfabricrugs.com, and the architecture practice www.four-o-nine.com, where we specialize in Hotel, Restaurant and Residential projects in the Asia, Europe and North America. Recently, the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards out of London nominated three of our restaurant projects in Beijing in the Best International Cafe, Best Restaurant in Asia and Best Bar in Asia categories for 2016.

We've exhibited at the largest interiors trade fair in the world, the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, 2016. In 2013 we were shortlisted by World Interior news out of London, as one of the top new interior products of the year. In 2016, Azure magazine has shortlisted has for the same honor. Our Urban Fabric Rugs limited edition series with 80's musician Magne F from A-Ha is in the hands of high profile individuals such as the Queen of Norway, and other prominent members of Scandinavian society.

I was an adjunct professor architecture at the University of Toronto and Waterloo in Canada.

I worked with Frank Gehry in Los Angeles, one the most famous living architects of our time. There I gained invaluable experience about architectural design.
