The exhibition THE ABC’S OF POLISH DESIGN shows the best of Polish design – from furniture, glass, and porcelain to written texts, logos, children’s toys, sports equipment, and even candy. Contemporary designs will be on display alongside classics, one-of-a-kind objects and artworks, prototypes, and fondly remembered everyday articles from the past century. As a commentary on these design icons, the exhibition will also include visual interpretations of 25 selected contemporary Polish illustrators and graphic designers. Organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of its Polska Design program promoting Polish design worldwide. The exhibition is co-organized by the Gdynia Design Centre and the Regional Museum in Stalowa Wola. Conceived as part of the international cultural program accompanying Poland’s centenary of regaining independence. Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage under the multiannual program NIEPODLEGŁA for the years 2017 to 2021.
