TheArt of Furniture is a container exhibition featuring designer, practical, innovative and facilitating furniture and interior design elements made at the Faculty of Interior Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. The student projects were created as part of semester classes, and some of them are also undergraduate and graduate theses. The exhibition is curated by Prof. Marek Blazucki, dean of WAW, and Dr. Łukasz Sarnat, associate dean of WAW, and Anna Markowska-Puzia is also responsible for its design.

three studios, three containers

The projects presented in three containers were made by three studios:

  • I Furniture and Interior Design Studio, led by Prof. Roman Kurzawski and Dr. Lukasz Sarnat,
  • II Studio of Designing Furniture and Interior Elements, led by Prof. Marek Blazucki and assistant Anna Markowska-Puzia,
  • III Studio of Design of Furniture and Interior Elements, led by Dr. Tomasz Wojcik and assistant Sylwia Siudak,
  • for part-time first degree studies in the Furniture Design course taught by Hubert Albertusiak.

The didactic program carried out at the studios includes the design of furniture and selected interior design elements. The program assumptions take into account the variety of functions and conditions of use of the designed objects, and the exercises carried out in the studios are designed to enable students to gain multiple artistic and technical experiences.

The aim of the Studio's training is to equip students with the ability to search for creative solutions to design problems, and this creativity is assumed to manifest itself in the area of both the development of form and construction, or the manner of realizing the assumed function, taking into account the close connection of these aspects, with the assumption of departure from commonly functioning stereotypes.
