From mid-1930s we know the mid-century style which we are so fascinated. Many people confuse themselves – mid-century is minimalism in some way, but not completely. It’s something between art deco, Bauhaus and minimalism.

WHAT IS CHARACTERISTIC FOR MID-CENTURY STYLE?

This style particular has some distinguishing features, that consist of a classic, understated look, and clean lines with minimal fuss. Functionality is important as form follows function, the space need to be uncluttered and have sleek lines with both organic and geometric forms, has minimal ornamentation and an exploration of different, and sometimes contrasting materials. In this category designers used materials such as wood, and non-traditional materials. For example, we made marble tables combined with wood and metal, which you can buy on our e-shop.

THE ICON OF MID-CENTURY

In our furniture we use the best fabrics and the highest quality wood to ensure best comfort, but also we are concentrated on Józef Chierowski’s design from 60s.

Józef Chierowski designed the most popular piece of Polish Mid-Century furniture - 366 Armchair. Thanks to its minimalist design and lightweight wooden construction, it was an instant success, soon to be found in almost every office, café and restaurant in Poland. The 366 Armchair was manufactured for over 20 years. Despite such success, this masterpiece never had the chance to be noticed outside of Poland.

We reissued this forgotten icon of Polish mid-century design, based on the original drawings from the 60s.
