Designer Desktop: August 2023 With Kapitza

Design studio Kapitza, founded by sisters Petra and Nicole, wants “to color the world with positive and uplifting works of art, as we believe that color has the power to make us feel better in ourselves and our communities.” We completely agree! Located in East London, the duo collaborates with brands and institutions to create everything from large murals to pop-up events to products and more – you can check out some of their projects below!

Our Designer Desktop for August features Kapitza’s abstract composition entitled NEW WAVES. It’s full of curved line segments that connect and cross each other to create “a flowing rhythm.” Petra and Nicole shared, “We were inspired by one of our favorite artists, Vera Molár, the first female artist to incorporate computers into her practice and her constant search for challenges, new materials, and surprises.”
