must have

must have is a poll, where we have showcased the most interesting products by Polish designers and manufacturers over the last four years. A specially invited Board of Experts, consisting of members of the media and the most important design centres in Poland, makes the selection of the best designed products. The nominated products have to satisfy two basic conditions: they have to come from Poland and be available to buy.

This year the Board of Experts admired and singled out not just traditional – physical – objects, but also well designed new technologies: services, games and apps.

must have is a free-of-charge quality mark, which Polish businesses can use in Poland and abroad. It was established to showcase excellent Polish design and thus promote Polish business and designers.

This year in the first stage of the poll

there were over 360 entries – both products nominated by the Board of Experts and those entered directly by makers. From those the Jury singled out and awarded the must have mark to the 60 most interesting designs.

The Board of Experts is made up of:

Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka – Programme Director of the School of Form
Ewa Solarz – Editor of the online service domzpomyslem.pl
Agnieszka Gruszczyńska-Hyc – Editor of the magazine M jak Mieszkanie
Anna Nowak-Ibisz – Present of the programme Pani Gadżet on TVN Style
Michał Bachowski – Researcher for the magazine F5 TREND BOOK
Anna Grużewska – Editor of the magazine Dom & Wnętrze
