It's not easy to show one hundred years of Polish design in just one hundred objects. Which ones were really the most important? The most intriguing? How does one choose? The Adam Mickiewicz Institute’s newest publication The ABCs of Polish Design features one hundred amazing Polish designs alongside young Polish illustrators’ interpretations of them. The book will be featured during an exhibition in Berlin.
The the exhibition will present the best of Polish product design – furniture, ceramics and glassware – and more: typography, toys, sporting equipment and even sweets! Contemporary design will be presented alongside classic designs and everyday favourites. The exhibition is a journey through the history of Polish design: the pieces are presented in chronological order.
The exhibition will also present interpretations of these design icons – twenty-five contemporary Polish illustrators and graphic designers were asked to share their visual interpretations of the pieces on display. Moreover, the exhibition will also share the stories behind each of the designs: find out about the designers, their inspirations and their creative processes. The exhibition is curated by Polish design expert Ewa Solarz.
