Product design group For Use was formed through collaboration of Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic in 1998. Two members studied at the School of Design in Zagreb, while Katzler studied at High school for applied arts in Vienna. Clients of For Use include ClassiCon, Interlubke, MDF Italia, Moroso, Rado, Zanotta and others. The initial work of the group is based upon experiments with system-based concepts and rationalistic aesthetic, applied in "total design" projects realized in Croatia. Today, Jonke, Katzler and Radeljkovi? are designing interiors, public spaces, theater set-designs, exhibitions, visual experiments, products and concepts under the name Numen/ForUse.

Maja Mesic firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Maja Mesic, I graduated industrial design in Zagreb at the University of Architecture, Study of design. Four years ago I opened my own studio for industrial design. I continuously create and work in different fields of industrial/product design, always searching for a new material, function, process or usage. Reinventing existing production process or material for new and original product is the best way to implement design in this slowly developing industry like Croatia has. My projects were exhibited as a part of numerous foreign fairs and exhibitions, but I would like to point out Boya crayon colors. This project was awarded with the Red Dot award. Although it seems we are loaded with products and objects , there are still things that need to be designed, always discover that and design for need. I see myself as an direktor and my orchestra is assmebeled of material, function, usage, production and a number of people who will use this product. My job is to make them sound great.
