Word

Some words from previous internships;

“ It is with great pleasure that I recommend Konrad for a position within a Design Studio environment. Konrad is a tenacious learner and a dedicated hard-worker who possesses a tempered enthusiasm worth respecting. Accepted for one of two internship positions, beginning in June of 2013, Konrad quickly surpassed expectations and became a integral part of our studio practice. Fort Standard is an Industrial Design studio focused in the design and manufacturing of high-end furniture and homeware. While working at Fort Standard Konrad was invariably exposed to variety of projects we had in development at the time. Projects included commercial interior design, glassware, table top and special events. Coming in at a particularly busy and chaotic time at our studio, Konrad was impressive in the ways he was able to digest instruction and work independently. Konrad is a welcomed and explorative addition to design discussions in a broad range of categories. During his time at our studio, Konrad's responsibilities included design development, project management, client relations, and fabrication. Konrad quickly adjusted to design orientation of our studio and worked very effectively as an extension of our hands. His main focus was to manage and execute a an environmental design project for MoMA's PS1 outdoor stage here in New York City. He did so with refreshing concepts, diligent communication and enthusiasm, often working late into the night to stay on schedule. It is a rare set of qualities to harness high-ambition and remain willing to accept criticism and direction. I can only imagine these traits will continue to develop a raw talent and have prepared him for any Studio environment.” Ian Collings & Gregory Buntain, FORT STANDARD
“ Konrad Bialowas was running an internship at our studio. He is concentrated, willing and charming. Actually we did not want to have an intern, but Konrad really made an effort in order to convince us. In the rather short time of his stay he was working on two competitions, both entries built up largely on his own research and design. He can speak, write, draw and make models at a very high standard which makes him a very good designer. Also he can do all kinds of computer things and really good photos. His commitment to our studio was impressive, actually he still helps us finishing projects, though he has already left the studio. If you get the chance to work with him, try it. If you have any further questions on him, give us a call. Best regards.” Daniel Klapsing, 45KILO
“ Konrad is an amazing person, that I´m sad that we couldn´t afford to hire. Our collaboration started with him approaching us at SNASK, wanting to establish SNASK products. We felt that it was a unique idea and great vision, so we made Konrad in charge of the whole process, with us backing him with financial support and industry experience. In the end he came up with a concept for a series of high-end bed sheets in a limited edition series. They are about to be produced and sold later this year, in stores around Stockholm. Like I stated in the beginning: He´s great. Sadly he left us to try out his wings in Mexico, in some multi-discplinary agency. From what I´ve heard, he´s continued to laugh a lot, and deliver on time. At such a young age - 22 - doing so much, makes me think of rockstar designers such as Stefan Sagmeister or Peter Saville. He´s eager and sometimes talks to fast, but his ideas and visions are bold and unique and isn´t that what most companies look for? Raw talent to die for.” Magnus Berg, SNASK
