Lukas Franciszkiewicz is a London-based designer, aesthetic gambler and co-founder of Takram London formed in 2015.
        After studying Industrial Design in his native Germany, he joined the Royal College of Art in London. He received his MA in Design Interactions at the RCA in 2014. Lukas is interested in exploring, designing and testing alternative models of representation against a technological green screen. Mainstream approaches, at least in design, are dominated by repetition, replication and continuity and fall short of inspiring and provoking genuinely new thinking about alternative realities. To risk the loss of all that we know is to risk the gain of all that could be. Let’s risk it.
