Topcreation Ltd.
CEO and Founder and Product designer
Create functional and aesthetic objects that can be helpful in everyday life, pay attention to the actual needs, and try to come up with valid and mature solutions.

I am the founder and creator of the TOP brand:
Shape and functionality: these two features usually go hand in hand
I’ve been studied statuary for five years that has underlain my designer skills. What made me become a designer is that articles are under constant development: we use them, we opt for the one that matches the interior of our homes, and we can change them. Sculpts have rather indirect effect on our lives, while a lamp besides having an aesthetic value has a function as well.

The essence of cultural heritage
I believe that there are styles and shapes that are unique to certain cultures. TOP’s aim is to create such products that have their roots in culture while having a cultural value themselves. As a designer I consider pay attention to the actual needs and problems too, and try to come up with valid and mature solutions to those.

In the last three years TOP® products won nine important rewards from Japan to Hungary including the Red Dot Design Award.
