In its bizarre designs Sípek uses wood in connection with metal, sets cool, sober design next to individual baroque legs and romantically ornamented outlines. His design language is very individual and poetic, the material mixture refined and sensitive at the same time… The architect and designer Borek Sípek finished his studies in architecture in 1979 at the technical university in Delft. Subsequently, he worked as a lector of Design theory on the university in Essen. He received the German architecture price and opened his own architecture and design office in Amsterdam in 1983. By now he possesses further offices in Prague and Shanghai. Sípek is known for its individual, unusual, colorful and opulent style. He experiments with unexpected and often baroque forms.
