Kapitza is the creative studio of sisters Petra and Nicole Kapitza, who share a passion for colour, patterns, mathematics and nature. The studio is collaborating with a wide range of international brands across the worlds of fashion, interiors, cosmetics, product design and publishing. Their clients include Comme des Garçons, Gucci, Clinique, USPS, TeNeues and IKEA.
Kapitza have gained a global following for their innovative pattern art books which showcase their bold, colourful artworks. These artworks are the result of the studio’s ongoing experimental research into geometric shapes and mathematic formulas as well as organic structures found in nature and mark making. Together with their intelligent conceptual colour language this defines the unique style of Kapitza’s art.
The publication of Kapitza’s Geometric book in 2008 sparked a resurgence of geometric art in fashion, interiors and illustration, but the intelligence of their patterns and unique use of colour is unsurpassed.
