POLISH Job at the Design Week in Milan

The exhibition of Polish design POLISH JOB opens from 8 to 13 April 2014 at fuori salone Ventura Lambrate, during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, one of the world’s leading design fairs.

PLAKTY_corecta4POLISH JOB introduces the international audience to contemporary Polish design based on local tradition, respect for the past and bold, forward-looking, innovative solutions.

The objects presented at the exhibition represent three complementary strands. One if LOCALITY: design growing out of local traditions defined by available materials, such as flax, wood and coal, technique and form. The strand NOSTALGIA features objects which neatly allude to Social Realism and process selected elements of the culture of that era in a smart dialogue with the past. INNOVATION showcases solutions which implement state-of-the-art technology and global trends.

The first two strands capture the specificity of Polish design and its distinctness by reaching back into the past. The third strand puts Polish design in the international context and relates to new technologies: it reveals the fascinating area of exploration where Polish designers touch on the same issues and speak the same language as the world’s leading designers.

The POLISH JOB exhibition is accompanied by workshops: the visitors can print out miniatures of selected exhibits on a 3D printer.

The exhibition in Milan is organised by culture.pl, the service which has for years introduced the world to the highlights of Polish culture. The POLISH JOB exhibition during the Salone Internationale del Mobile in April 2014 is a continuation of projects from previous years.
