NOTI at the exhibition of the National Museum in Cracow
The NOTI brand has started cooperation with the National Museum in Krakow. The venue will host an exhibition called "The other side of things. Polish design after 1989”. The aim of the show is to tell the story of Polish design understood not only in terms of market needs but also its culture-forming role. "The other side of things" reflects the condition of the society, with a focus on technological skills, marketing capacities and organizational opportunities, but above all creative sensitivity, values and aspirations. The exhibition, which will comprise six sections, is intended to showcase characteristic trends in design resulting both from economic changes and diverse attitudes to design in Poland.
Be sure to visit the exhibition and NOTI's contribution which will feature a number of furniture collections including Clapp, Comfee, Comma, Bouli, Stone, Slim, Manta, Tulli, Teddy Bear, Trefle and Termo.
Slim, design: Towarzystwo Projektowe (Jerzy Porębski i Grzegorz Niwiński), 2005
Arm chairs and sofas of sophisticated shape and characteristic slim line. The name of the collection simultaneously characterises the piece of furniture, bent into an S shape.
Comfee, design: Anna Hrecka, 2007
Comfee arm chair collection, inspired by an ethereal dandelion, constitute light and very comfortable seats creating indoors the atmosphere of calmness and rest. The innovative construction of the seat suspension on a metal frame guarantees exceptional comfort of use.
Termo, design: Tomek Rygalik, 2008
Termo is a modern interpretation of a seat shape for public interiors. The user has the possibility to assemble different elements of the system to the form of bath made of glass fibre. The variety of options of arranging the seat against the backrest and combining them with additional elements - pouf or table - provides a large scope for creating sophisticated compositions of a module piece of furniture.
Comma, design: Renata Kalarus, 2009
The Comma chair’s profile refers to a punctuation comma, a mark to stop and catch your breath, in this case... by the table. Getting rid of a selected part from a homogeneous solid allowed building a seat of optimal functional parameters with a practical, semi-circular space: a space for loins and heavy items of clothing.
Manta, design: Piotr Kuchciński, 2009/2016
Line of sofas, arm chairs, and coffee tables of distinctive shape, inspired by toys made of paper - origami. The collection is characterised by armrests and backrests in a unique shape of trapeziums tilted outwards.
Manta Lounge is an exclusive piece of furniture with headrests and footrests, of high design value and improved ergonomics.
Bouli, design: Uniwersytet Artystyczny w Poznaniu (Julia Czechowska, Olga Mężyńska, Urszula Burgieł) – cooperation as part of the Educational and Design Programme (PE-P), 2011
Irregular and amorphous forms of Bouli sofas were designed to surprise the users of a space with an unconventional form of waiting. The diverse surface of solids makes it possible to take a comfortable position, it gives the impression of lightness and softness of form.
Stone, design: Tomasza Augustyniak, 2011
The Stone collection is characterised by the original and modern shape, referring to the Bauhaus classics. The line includes sofas and armchairs in several variants, with or without a hand rest and a footrest, creating, together with an armchair, an interesting version of chaise longue.
Trefle, design: Piotr Kuchciński, 2012
Trefle is a unique interpretation of a normal coffee table. The sophisticated form of a pouf, stool, and a hocker, looks like a four-leaf clover which brings luck. The pouf functions as a coffee table thanks to an independent, sewn-on top which may function as a tray.
Clapp, design: Piotr Kuchciński, 2013
The collection won the Red Dot Product Design Award and it refers to the ‘60s, especially to the “366” armchair of Józef Chierowski. It is a combination vintage aesthetics and modern shapes - the form is characterised with sharply marked edges of wooden basis and upholstered seats.
Teddy Bear, design: Mikołaj Wierszyłłowski i Projektanci, 2013
The inspiration for Teddy Bear form was a sentimental trip in the past, to the “golden” age Polish design (‘50s/’60s) and the mood of the childhood. The user, depending on their interests and requirements plays with solids, combines armchairs and sofas - larger, smaller, lower, and higher. It’s like playing blocks.
Tulli, design: Tomek Rygalik, 2015
Collection of seats with Red Dot Product Design Award refers to the design of Tulipan armchair by Teresa Kruszewska from 1973. The form of Tulli is simultaneously stunning and simple. It is characterised by subtly open armrests and technology thanks to which it can be used both indoors and outdoors.
The opening will take place on Thursday, April 5 at 18th, and press conference earlier, at 12th in the Main Building of the National Museum in Krakow, al. 3 Maja 1l. It will last until 19 August 2018.
