Bozenna and Lukasz Bogucki
We design and make handbags of stainless steel mesh. It is most beautiful material, highly industrial and rarely seen, mostly hidden deep down in the filtering systems. We are very proud to bring it to daylight so everyone can see and appreciate it.
Since nobody makes anything of it, we had to develop our own techniques and methods.. It took us years before we started to feel comfortable about this very demanding material and longer we work with it, more we discover: new properties, new applications and new ways to achieve unexpected effects. We are fascinated by stainless steel mesh after all these years no less than in the first days of our adventure. We call our line The Opera Collection; it consists of some 60 models named after famous operas. All work from design to the finishing touches is done in our Los Angeles workshop. All our stainless steel products block unauthorized transmission from RFID enabled credit cards and IDs
I design and make things out of stainless steel mesh. It is most beautiful material, highly industrial and rarely seen, mostly hidden deep down in the filtering systems.
The material was an inspiration and the challenge was to transform it into art objects. I am very happy to bring it to daylight so everyone can see and appreciate beauty of it.
