ABC’s of Polish Design

100 works of Polish designers interpreted by 25 Polish illustrators

The exhibition (21 June – 28 July at SKLAD) combines past and present, showing the heritage of Polish design through the achievements of contemporary Polish graphic. We display 100 works of Polish designers that have been interpreted by 25 Polish illustrators. 

100 design objects

Among the 100 designs, apart from furniture, glass or porcelain universally associated with design, we have included less obvious things such as: fonts, logos, kids' toys and others.
We present contemporary designs along with the ones that are already considered classical; unique objects, prototypes that have never entered mass production; but also very popular things that have been used by Poles on a daily basis during the last 100 years.

100 stories about design

The show consists not only of the 100 objects and their visual interpretations, but also of 100 stories: about designers, needs, dreams, possibilities and limitations.
The objects are presented in chronological order, which shows that certain materials, topics and forms keep reappearing throughout this 100-year long history of Polish design.

The curator is Ewa Solarz.
