“The ABCs of Polish Design” exhibition opened on Sunday in Toronto as a part of the annual DesignTO festival, the largest event of its kind in Canada.
The exhibition presents a total of 100 items conceived by Polish designers, accompanied by background stories and illustrations that were their source of inspiration.
“The ABCs of Polish Design” does not only showcase items associated with artistic design, such as furniture, glasswork or porcelain. Among the exhibits are also the works of Polish typography artists. Moreover, there are toys, including designs coming from the interwar period.
“The exhibition presents the common presence and necessity of design in everyday life of humans, which is often an overlooked fact,” the organisers explained.
Robyn Wilcox, the head of the DesignTO programme said that the festival has wanted to present the Polish exhibition since 2018, which finally was possible thanks to the General Consulate of Poland in Toronto.
