About Branka Urbanija : The company In Dekor, being a synoym for esthetics, presents itself with most modern and visually stunning solutions of personal styling, interior arrangement and decoration. To serve, track and accept challenges, overcome the limitations and create an inspiring, accepting and mostly a compatible living space and accessories for each customer individually. The work is mostly dedicated to creating surroundings and setting up the living space in such manner that it becomes as functional and aesthetically attractive as possible in addition to being set up exclusively for the particular lifestyles. In such living space and with sofisticated accessories, all personal and spiritual growth is much less disrupted, what also leads to a life of prosperity. As an answer to the needs of modern time, a new research branch that connects both design and anthropology has emerged, named Design Anthropology. While applying the up-to-date ideas of the new branch itself the vision is nourished with creativity combined with extreme efficiency as the products shockingly prove.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Human resources and potentials are utilized less than 40% of human race capabilities and our brain is used at only a 10% rate and even more untapped are the sources from our environment. All existing things were man-made to fulfill human needs, which is a fundamental aspect and sense of design and especially the ever changing environment it emerges from. In response to the needs of modern world a new scientific research field was created, which connects the areas of design with anthropology, called Design-Anthropology, merging the reality with the needs it expresses. This is an effective way to cope with the challenges and needs of modern human beings and provides solutions for unpredictable situations in this uncertain times in the design world where things change faster than one could blink.
In the last decade or two, the direction of design has taken a turn towards absurdity in more than one way, plunging practicality and the beauty of efficiency to the bottom itself, oversaturating people's minds with the ''more is better'' mentality in many different shapes and natures. Whenever such things happen, a resistance of some sort is formed and my latest projects are with no question the resistence itself in its toughest form possible. I believe this approach is a powerful way to help keep the Blue planet safe from excessive garbage we soullelsly burden it with, while still keeping the material quality and most importantly, the design on top of the market.
We make the life of our believers so much more fluent and efficient, that most clients try their hardest to keep up to date with our products and ideas by staying in touch long after getting to know me and my associates. This gives me a spark, a hope of a vision, preaching to look at earth as we look at a fellow person and start evolving in prosperity, where cohabitation would not present a challenge, but an advantage to make alive and awaken again our deepest emotions, that we left behind since our earliest childhood. I believe, that our kind is more than ready to start respecting our environment more than their subjective truths and with that enable the unspoiled lives of the ones who wish to LIVE, to have a free path in attaining it. We are only on a start of a revolution, but it will not be a revolution we are used to, but a revolution of love.
