Peter Straka

Peter Straka is the designer behind many of the company’s lighting objects. He is a graduate of Industrial Design at the Viennese University of Applied Arts and a trained metalworker and engineer.

Peter’s work is also influenced by his love for the rebellious period of the Viennese Jugendstil.  The lighting object he designs for Kaia are a masterful blend of art, technology and craftsmanship – all combined with a clear vision of what is essential. For Peter the design process is both a complete circle and a continuous journey with no beginnings and endings. The result is the design, equivalent of a journey: with the light off – the aesthetic object, with the light on – the value of its function.
