Martynas Kazimierėnas (b. 1982, Lithuania) is an object designer and Artistic Director of the March Design Studio in Vilnius, Lithuania. He studied Design at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, later continuing his studies at Eindhoven’s Design Academy. Kazimierėnas is interested in the functions of objects which he uses as a starting point to design experiences for their users.
In his creative practice, Kazimierėnas focuses on functionality, materials and technology to explore the nature of shape, possibilities of altering the object creation process and the concepts of various objects. The designer draws attention to commonly used everyday objects which he then analyses to discover a function that would dictate their entire visual identity. Kazimierėnas offers an innovative way of designing objects by introducing a contemporary approach to design and technology as a way to create simplistic and fashionable design solutions for mundane objects, such as bottles, shoelaces, lamps and many more.
Martynas Kazimierėnas’s personal design projects go side by side with his roles of Founder and Senior Designer at Vilnius’s March Design Studio. Objects of his design have received many awards and were presented in design exhibitions and fairs all around the globe. The artist is currently living and working in Vilnius.
