The Best of Crazy Polish Communist-Inspired Design

Dansaert | Square Marie-Louise | Esplanade of the European Parliament [part of DESIGN SEPTEMBER]
09/09/14 - 30/09/14

A new generation of designers is emerging in Poland. The thing one notices very quickly is that it is strongly influenced by the historical phenomena to which Poland has borne witness, notably the Communist period. This had a major impact on the designers’ vision of daily life. It is this vision that takes pride of place in the exhibition The best of Crazy Polish Communist-Inspired Design, an integral part of the festival DESIGN SEPTEMBER.

The designers participating hail from the region of Łódź, in the centre of Poland. A region known for its famous film school (Roman Polański, Andrzej Wajda, etc.), it is also noted for its industrial past. Currently, the region is characterised by a considerable degree of creativity and development, especially in the field of design. The goal of those behind the exhibition is to show an innovative approach towards design in the context of a particular historical heritage, whilst at the same time taking a step back from from the clichés of folklore.
