Polish Design in the middle of transition, reflection, inspiration and innovation.
The exhibition Polish Design: in the Middle of was an extensive presentation of polish design during Dutch Design Week 2014.
The exhibition curated by Izabela Bołoz presented a selection of works by 30 new and more established Polish designers. Brought together in this way, their projects provided an insight into the potential of Polish design and the mindset of Polish designers. Polish design currently finds itself in an ever-changing landscape. It is on the move, evolving and exploring fresh, individual directions. It is in the middle of transition, reflection, inspiration and innovation.
Exhibition design has been inspired by polish traditional values such as hospitality and social relationships. It is therefore only fitting that it takes the form of a long table, the very heart of a Polish home. The exhibition not only showcased Polish design but also created a platform for interaction and conversation - an extensive daily program with an impressive line-up of speakers complemented the presentation.
Extensive daily program of lectures and demonstrations
During the exhibition a comprehensive daily program featured renowned designers and trend watchers, among which were Lidewij Edelkoort (special guest), Oskar Zięta, Bogusław Paruch and Zuzanna Skalska, among others. The speakers addressed such subjects as car design, metal-processing technologies, scent design and sense branding, trends, interactive design, as well as the state of Polish design today. The program extended to workshops and demos.
