LOPP, by Pawlak & Stawarski Studio
Bartłomiej Pawlak and Łukasz Stawarski, who together run Pawlak & Stawarski Studio, presented their LOPP collection, consisting of two desks and a dressing table. Each item of furniture has a drawer for storing slim documents or odds and ends. In addition, the dressing table has an adjustable mirror that can be rotated.
Ginka, by Sylwia Juchimowicz and Tabanda
Inspired by the geometry of Japanese ginkgo leaves, Ginka armchair was created by Tabanda, a design and production trio in collaboration with Sylwia Juchimowicz.
The armchair seduces with its shapes and attention to detail with the highest comfort. Ginka is extremely characteristic. It’s the icing on the cake of every interior. Wherever it appears, it fills the space and gives it its originality.
Holi, by Agnieszka Cieszanowska and Anna Jurgielewicz
Agnieszka Cieszanowska and Anna Jurgielewicz presented a series of vases at the fair with a colorful disc that intersects three-quarters of the way down the body of the structure.
In Holi, the colors are activated in contact with the light. Minimalistic in form and at the same time magical in combination with light, vases create an abstract landscape of colors.
ASHka, by Mateusz Mioduszewski
Mateusz Mioduszewski a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice presented his ASHka collection at the festival, made from ash waste.
The ash for the collection comes from Polish coal-burning power stations. Mioduszewski created a material made from up to 70 percent of ash waste, which can be easily formed and naturally dyed. The rest of the material is made up of clay and water.
Gaja, by Katarzyna Staszel
Katarzyna Staszel a Kraków Academy of Fine Arts graduate, displayed a set of kitchen utensils called Gaja. Gaia’s set is inspired by traditional, ceramic vessels that humanity has been using for this purpose for thousands of years.
It consists of three modules – a bowl, a strainer, and a flat vessel. Each of them is functional at each stage of baking bread – starting from kneading the dough, through its rising, to baking in a hot oven. In order to meet the expectations of a modern user, who are increasingly looking for universal solutions, the form of the dishes was designed so that all three modules fit together and create as many different configurations as possible.
