Simplus Design is a studio based in Brooklyn, New York founded by Sebastian Misiurek and Arianna Lebed that focuses on digital design and 3D Printed furniture and housewares. With the progression of 3D Printing and their background in Architecture, a perfect partnership was created between their ideas and formulating them into well thought-out physical objects. They primarily explore designs through parametric modeling, which lends itself well to this type of technology, and allows them to push the boundaries of their tools while achieving greater levels of complexity within their work.
Simplus Design has gained accolades from HGTV Magazine, Prattfolio Magazine, MakerBot, Thingiverse, Make Magazine, Maker Faire, Sucker Punch, NOTCOT, and Pratt Institute Alumni Portfolios.
Ashley Zelinskie is an artist based in Brooklyn, N.Y. Her work blurs the lines between art and technology, and spans a variety of media from sculpture to computer programs. After receiving a degree in glass from the Rhode Island School of Design, Ashley began to experiment with the pairing of artistic media and technology. The work she creates now is designed to be appreciated by both human and computer.
FROM THE ARTIST:
Ever since I held my first crayon I knew that I wanted to be some sort of artist someday. I love to make things and get my hands dirty, otherwise I get bored and don't know what to do with myself. I studied illustration at the Rochester Institute of Technology and it gave me a lot of insight into how to give my art a function. Illustration is fun because it allows me to tell visual stories and use my imagination to bring concepts to life. I'm also interested in graphic, web, and interactive design and like learning about them in my spare time. I am available for freelance projects, especially editorial work and character design, so feel free to drop me a line on my contact page if you'd like to work with me!
I'm originally from Rochester, NY but I'm currently living in Brooklyn. It's a, um, special place, but I dig it. When I'm not making things I am probably social dancing, baking, spending too much time on the internet, sleeping, bothering my cat, or stuffing my face with food.
