Artur Dabrowski is a trained architect with the soul of story teller. Through his shop called Multiply Like Rabbits, he creates 3D printed jewelry that features elegant rings, necklaces, and bracelets—all with a playful narrative element to them. As the store name suggests, rabbits are a big part of the Dabrowski’s design, but he also uses his background in architecture to produce structured rings that have elements like tiny stairs built within. Each has their own “hidden story” with a particular meaning to Dabrowski, but their symbolism is open-ended so that the wearer can imbue them with their own meaning.
The approach to Multiply Like Rabbits is intuitive; for Dabrowski, when something is right, it’ll feel like it. “I like to think that design is best when it’s not-designed, as if the end product was a found object,” he writes, “unquestionable in its presence and without anyone’s claim of originality.” But, it’s important to fan this flame. “‘Depth’ moves me,” he explains—both in a formal sense as well as conceptual. “I like to naively create a moment suggestive of a story… of a story that can be interpreted differently than my initial intent.”
So, why rabbits? It’s a question that Dabrowski gets asked a lot, but they hold a special significance to him; rabbits were the starting point of Dabrowski’s creative life. After first appearing in the margins of his high school notebooks, they soon became a proxy for his thoughts and feelings. “Rabbits were the vessel through which I felt comfortable expressing myself. I have notebooks filled with drawings of rabbits, each telling their own story.”
