The typical Ghyczy DNA.
WallpaperSTORE* has teamed up with GHYCZY, an exclusive creative local design studio in which the second generation is now leading the company, for its Pop-Up shop, in partnership with the mythic Design concept store XBank, entirely dedicated to creativity Made in the Netherlands.
GHYCZY [gitsi] is a family heirloom, founded in 1971 by acclaimed architect and designer Peter Ghyczy whose proli c career has pioneered techniques of furniture making that have in uenced the design industry for 45 years. His son Felix Ghyczy joined the practice in 2001 and today the father and son duo continue to build on the GHYCZY heritage from their family atelier nestled in the atlands of Swalmen, the Netherlands.
Over four decades, the GHYCZY catalogue of work has grown organically from Peter Ghyczy’s strong ethos of slow design and his trademarked casting and clamping techniques of solid material; innovations that have not only paved the way for new modernist design expressions but also allowed for minimum use of material. Inspired from Peter Ghyczy’s travels and migration through central Europe, the distinct GHYCZY aesthetic combines Bauhaus minimalism with exotic Art Deco patterns and intricate details from Egyptian antiquity
From the classic T09 table launched in 1971, the timeless collection now encompasses table series, seating, shelving, cabinets and lighting; all made to order and hand-crafted in material with high quality patinas and niches that increase their appeal over time. Each piece derives its elegant character from nature’s imperfections; from cracks and knots in wood to irregularities in stone and pores in metal from sand-casting, these elements are GHYCZY trademarks. Standing the test of time, the treasured GHYCZY product can be found at international museums, Christie’s auctions or sitting in some of the world’s leading hotels from Ace Hotel Downtown LA to the Ritz Carlton, Geneva.
