Interview: Edgy Interior Designer Karina Wiciak Uncovers the Inspiration Behind Her Compelling XII Collection

If you've seen any images from Karina Wiciak's XII collection, you won't soon forget her work. The Wamhouse designer's long-term project is a series of 12 luxury restaurants that completely reinterprets the dining space, combining elements of horror and fantasy to create otherworldly scenes.

An interior designer since 2005 and a background in civil engineering, love fuels her work and Wiciak finds herself drawn to unique artistic combinations of architecture and aesthetic design. When she was first starting out, she worked in Chojnice, a small town in northern Poland that is near the famous Tuchola Forest and the Bory Tucholskie National Park. Being so close to nature infused her work with a fresh and organic way of looking at architecture, inspiring not only her process but also the finished product.
