Oaza is at service for all tropical fruit lovers.

After a significant number of collaborations in the field of design, six freelance artists—Nina Bačun, Ivana Borovnjak, Roberta Bratović, Tina Ivezić, Maja Kolar and Maša (Ana-Marija) Poljanec—first established the Oaza collective spontaneously in 2013 and since 2014 it is formally active as Oaza Art Organisation. The authors share a reflective approach to work, as well as continuous engagement on projects commissioned by the independent cultural scene.

Since formally joined, Oaza launched two large-scale project initiatives (Ilica Project and S ruke na ruku (Handed down), and have been continually pursuing projects involving visual communications design, design research, curatorial design concepts, product and service design as well as set design, often as expanded cross-disciplinary teams-work.
