Our name derives from the Latin word   accūrātus   which means ‘precise, meticulous, done with care’. We are passionate about what we do, and feel these words best describe us, our body of work, and overall approach to the design process.

We are an offbeat design practice based in Gdańsk, Poland. Akurat operates freely across various media, scales, and fields ranging from furniture, interior, architecture to graphic design and branding. This holistic approach results in outcomes that are original, context specific, often surprising but never random. We choose to work with people that share our values and who trust in design’s ability to make an impact on multiple levels. Recognizing the potential to learn and evolve that comes with each new project we remain always curious. We tend to ask a lot of questions to understand the task at hand, and strive to create thoughtfully crafted, functional and memorable work that engages, inspires, and stands the test of time.
            Originally founded in 2016 by Maciej Ryniewicz and his colleague, fellow architect Rafał Kaletowski. In 2022 the duo split ways with Rafał embarking on his own journey with a stronger focus on architecture.



Maciej Ryniewicz
︎    Creative Director & Founder

Faculty of Architecture graduate from Gdańsk University of Technology, he is also a self-taught graphic designer and interior architect. An ambitious individual, he is his own worst critic. The conviction that you should question everything in order to never become too complacent is his ultimate source of motivation and helps him reach distinctive and optimal solutions to various design problems. Maciej believes that ‘style’ doesn’t necessarily have to be purely aesthetic-related, but can also be manifested in an approach and manner of doing things.

Zofia Niesiobędzka
︎    Interior Architect

Zofia is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, where she focused on deeply ideological and empirical design. Her soft and artistic background makes her a dreamer, always coming up with (too) bold ideas. In design, she is open to all and loves the use of irony and camp, though she aspires to create meaningful and mature spaces with an aim to last. Zofia loves a good design fun-fact only slightly less than good gossip, and in her desire to learn and become inspired, she could spend most of her days discussing utopian matters. At Akurat she is the house baker and Gen Z representative.
Zofia is Ⓐ team member since 2021.

Jakub Bartos
︎    Architect

Jakub is a humble, hardworking individual. Always looking on the bright side of things, he is a problem solver. When faced with a challenging task, his thoughts tend to revolve around it until he finds a solution both optimal and non-obvious. Perceptively observing his surroundings, busy city life has been a constant source of inspiration since his adolescent years, when he would travel across Europe on his skateboard. This was also when he would stumble upon his passion for architecture. Now, as a matured designer with a broader perspective, he values design in the spirit of sustainable development in harmony with ecology.
Jakub is Ⓐ team member since 2020.
