Lamp design has been Tomek Rudkiewicz's passion since the beginning of his career.
In 1981 in Hanover, he received a prestigious iF award for his design of the POLAM-WILKASY lamp system, which he co-authored with Bartek Pniewski.
In the 1980s, together with his brother Jakub, he ran MASS, a lighting design and manufacturing company in Warsaw. MASS lamps illuminated thousands of Polish homes, offering a colourful and good quality alternative to the grey and empty socialist market.
