In June 2016, the Slanted editors Lars Harmsen and Julia Kahl embarked on a two-week-trip to Warsaw, taking a close-up look at the contemporary design scene in Warsaw. They wanted to figure out what Polish design looks like today, asking how the young generation finds its place in society—in a capital which is constantly striding forward—a great opportunity and/or struggle, re-defining own positions and thoughts.
Slanted met numerous designers, from old masters and legends, such as Rosław Szaybo or Mieczysław Wasilewski, to the young wild ones, such as Noviki, Type2, Jakub de Barbaro, or Edgar Bąk Studio—as well as well known figures from the contemporary design scene, such as Łukasz Dziedzic, FONTARTE, HUNCWOT, Grzegorz Laszuk, Mamastudio, Super Super, Syfon Studio, Jacek Utko, UVMW, White Cat Studio, and Zerkaj Studio. Their great work can be found in Slanted Magazine, her opinions and views in the additional video interviews!
