Polish design 1955-1968

News for all design travellers heading to Poland: an interesting exhibition starts tomorrow at The National Museum in Warsaw. Entitled "We want to be modern", the exhibition presents Polish design from the Modernism period between the regime thaw of 1955 and the social reforms brought in 1968. Featured ceramics, glass, textiles and furniture express new design thought of the time, slowly liberating from socialist realism. Beautiful everyday objects from the vast museum collection were almost unknown in Western Europe. I think the chairs are genius!

  2. the chairs are amazing! I would love to have them at my home. I read about Lalanne in a Bulgarian magazin and here: http://www.escapeintolife.com/artist-watch/francois-xavier-lalanne/. Scale is not easy for me too. I love a quote of Jonathan Adler "Scale is the most under-considered piece of the decorating puzzle. Put a Gothic throne in a studio apartment." :-) Hugs to you

  9. I love the gentle curves on the chairs! I'd love to have at least two in my home! Regarding Casa Honore', i posted about it on my blog last year September. The link is here: http://designaddictmom.blogspot.com/2010/09/je-t.html. I also had the living space on my tumblr too-i am smitten with Casa Honore, plus it's in France:-)
