Nikolai Kotlarczyk is an Australian designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark since 2013. Nikolai’s studio focuses on design pieces full of narrative. A strong connection with geography, history, materiality and rituals can be seen in his pieces. Working within a self-expressed refined decorative style, his work aims to simplify the act of storytelling through an honest pallet of materials, and bold forms.
His work includes self-initiated edition pieces and design pieces for manufactures and has been shown in a number of international exhibitions including Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Melbourne.
Nikolai is a member of studio and workshop Hal 4 in Nordhavn, regularly contributes to Australian online publication Yellowtrace, and is a former member and co-founder of the culture-house in Copenhagen's inner north, Øen.
