Ghyczy


GHYCZY [gitsi] is a family heirloom, founded in 1971 by acclaimed architect and designer Peter Ghyczy whose prolific career has pioneered techniques of furniture making that have influenced the design industry for 45 years. His son Felix Ghyczy joined the practice in 2001 and today the father and son duo continue to build on the GHYCZY heritage from their family atelier nestled in the flatlands of Swalmen, the Netherlands.

Over four decades, the GHYCZY catalogue of work has grown organically from Peter Ghyczy’s strong ethos of slow design and his trademarked casting and clamping techniques of solid material; innovations that have not only paved the way for new modernist design expressions but also allowed for minimum use of material. Inspired from Peter Ghyczy’s travels and migration through central Europe, the distinct GHYCZY aesthetic combines architectural minimalism with historical and artistic influences.
