Philosophy

At Mleko Living we focus on delivering remarkable, long-lasting design for our everyday lives.

We address the global problem of mass consumption and disposability with conscious design decisions regarding materials and production process.

Story

Mleko Living was founded in 2017 by Katarzyna Zaluska and Michal Zaluski. Initially we operated as a home accessories and furniture brand twice awarded with a must have design award. Since 2020 we work as a design studio.

In 2016 we graduated from Technical University of Eindhoven in Architecture, where we learned to combine the digital design process with hands-on approach.

We computer modelled and physically prototyped numerous objects, experimented with different materials and became more interested in the scale of everyday objects.

After the studies we decided to set up our own brand to design and manufacture home accessories and furniture in collaboration with local craftsmen. We partnered with print-shops, locksmiths, woodworkers and set up our own ceramic workshop to bring our designs to live. Those experiences gave us a close insight into the cycles of manufacturing and product implementation processes.

Since 2020 we focus exclusively on design partnerships with local and international brands. We believe that such collaborations make a big impact on the quality of our living environment and the way objects are made.
