Kickie Chudikova was born into color. Raised in Slovakia, she grew up in an old modernist house built by a renowned 1930s architect. Each wall was a different saturated hue left behind by the previous tenant – a painter. In the 1970s, her parents embraced the color, adding complimentary bright furnishings like red floral carpets, orange pendant lights and green kitchen cabinets. Today, Kickie says color is her comfort zone in life and work – it's easy to see why. From furniture and jewelry to glassware and lighting, Kickie approaches design with a focus on the emotional triggers behind color and form. With an emphasis on creating objects that spark joy, Kickie embraces sculptural, organic shapes that speak to our bodies and minds as humans. In Kickie’s world, design and optimism must go hand in hand.
Brooklyn, New York
As a product designer, I believe color can make or break an object. Color is a strength that triggers an emotion and it can have different meanings depending on the culture you are coming from. I love to study color and implement it throughout my work and space.
I am a very optimistic person, and I consider myself lucky to be able to do what I love and meet good people while doing it. I like to spread positive energy and through my designs I aim to lift people's spirits, by bringing something new to the table that sparks joy.
I love the vibrancy of the city and then I need to come home to reset. Balance is key and I can’t have one without the other. If I'm just going to stay home, why even live in New York? I love to create things that represent both sides of the coin.
