About Monika Unger
I was brought up in a challenging cultural and political environment in Warsaw. In 1969, after the dramatic 1968 upraising in Czechoslovakia, my family moves to Brussels where I finish high school and graduate in architecture at 'La Cambre', the post Bauhaus school founded by Henry Van De Velde. I spent two years in Cambridge and got my masters degree in Environmental design from MIT. I then move to Italy where, after an architecture stage with Giancarlo De Carlo, I join the Corporate Image department of Olivetti in Milan. A passion for modernist furniture, I collect XX Century Design pieces from Scandinavia and Brazil. I pursue my career as an architect and art director for private and commercial projects. I have a passionate approach to architecture adn design and my interests embrace visual arts, communication and new media. I love our country retreat where I spend as much time as possible...The property is named after my father, Leopold Unger, journalist and writer who loved this place as much as I do
