Curator: Grupa Projektowa Razy2

The Taste of an Object exhibition, which purpose is promotion of Pomeranian designers and firms from creative sector, is a story about products told in non-verbal language. Each of the objects would be also presented in a form of specially composed dish. The project welcomes to savour in the warmth of a heater, speed of a bike, light of a street lamp, comfort of furniture or child’s play experience. There will also be something to nourish the soul and the memories. This eclectic cluster is also to portray the wide spectrum of activity among the Polish and Pomeranian designers. The exhibition showcases both single products as well as those mass-produced in hundreds, those enriching the interiors and co-forming the technical infrastructure, all designed in interdisciplinary teams. Chosen products are the achievements of firms located in Pomeranian Science&Technology Park and others.

Urban furniture, objects and accessories designed for rest, relaxation and leisure. They have been created by the most talented young Polish designers for the citizens of Gdynia and tourists visiting this city.

Designers participating in the project are young or very young, but they had already managed to mark their presence with interesting realisations, involving themselves in important exhibitions and winning prizes in design contests. Most of them come from the hinterland and this is most likely why the seaside and open nature of Gdynia capture their imagination most profoundly.

The task assigned to them is to create projects targeted at residents and visitors of the city in any age group. These projects should engage in a dialogue with the environment and respond to the needs and desires of people. These are installations such as urban furniture, objects and accessories designed for rest, relaxation and leisure. The other objects are souvenirs – functional objects that carry an emotional load by means of their matter and the associations they trigger.
