Originally hailing from Poznan, Poland, where he completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Fine Arts, Marcin Pogorzelski is currently working towards his Masters at Sweden's renowned Konstfack. His latest projects certainly express a bit of Scandinavian influence, both for their simple elegance and fluent execution.
First up, the belTable is a bit more Home Depot than IKEA (in a good way): Pogorzelski set out to "minimize every part of table and make it even easier to put together after unpacked at home." It consists of just four parts: the tabletop, legs, pegs and its signature element: a heavy-duty nylon belt.
As you might have guessed, the belTable requires no screws or glue for assembly. The belt also doubles as an ad hoc storage solutions for newspapers and magazines, as illustrated in the images.
Pogorzelski's "Light Invaders" are a bit more conceptual in nature: inspired by insects and the process of natural selection, he wanted to make a lamp that is "only a light deliverer nothing else." The fixture is set on a trio of dowels, and the tripodal "light creature" comes in three sizes.
Far be it for me to surmise that these lamps represent the evolution of a previously-seen lighting concept...
