Lamps, furniture and clothes designed by students of the Faculty of Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw were presented in a prestigious Greenhouse section featuring the most talented design novices. It is a great honour because the Warsaw Academy was the first Polish design school to exhibit its works in Greenhouse. Students’ designs could be found in the Too Much Too Much exhibition, which was divided into three sections: simplicity, chaos and flexibility.

Too Much Too Much offers you to take a critical look at items which we need on a daily basis and which are under constant pressure of transformation. Too Much Too Much provides room for discussion. Selected exhibits can give us food for thought about challenges facing modern design,” stressed Magda Kochanowska, curator of the Too Much Too Much exhibition and lecturer at the Faculty of Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.

Among exhibits of Polish designers one could find the Ribbon Chair by Jan Lutyk – an award-winning wooden seat which looks as if made from a tangled ribbon. Moreover, on display in Stockholm were items of furniture, lamps and clothes by Jakub Marzoch, Karolina Mikołajczyk, Kamila Niedźwiedzka, Delfina Petkow, Anna Pogudz, Katarzyna Skórzyńska, Monika Smaga, Krzysztof Smaga and Nikodem Szpunar.

The exhibition was organized by the Polish Institute in Stockholm and portal Culture.pl. Between 17 and 20 February, the collection will be shown in Poznan during the 7th edition of the Arena Design fair.
