Mara series of objects are named after Kraš’s grandmother Mara, who was a kitchen manager in a canteen during the Second World War. Mara’s own kitchen featured simple laminated cabinets. Growing up, surrounded by communist decor, Kraš developed a special soft spot for laminates. She likes laminate because the material is durable, easy to clean and comes in many colors. In Mara series Kraš plays with surfaces, geometry and color, and uses laminates like paper collages.
