I am going for a meeting!

It has all star­ted in War­saw, now it’s time for Poznań, Wro­cław, War­saw aga­in and who knows whe­re else? In Empik’s salons, as in the old days, in the atmo­sphe­re of an intel­li­gen­ce discus­sion, I have a chan­ce to meet hun­dreds of people with simi­lar inte­re­sts. Oh, [...]

Catalog, you fool!

Any­one can col­lect! Well, almo­st. Cata­lo­ging is only for the masters of patien­ce, not for an ‘aggres­si­ve mouse’… Today I’ll tell you abo­ut why it is wor­th to cata­log and how to do it witho­ut fal­ling into the autumn melan­cho­lia… If some­one does not play smart they feel ill. In my [...]

Fantastic Szczecin!

This time the post will be abo­ut how reading com­pre­hen­sion and asking one sim­ple question can give extre­me­ly effec­ti­ve results. And it was so: a mes­sa­ge fell into my ema­il box. The mes­sa­ge was from the nice­st Paweł, a stran­ger of cour­se, that told me he owns a wall unit by [...]

Incredible museum of design in New York!

Main and com­mon­ly known 5th Ave­nue in New York. It’s here that the most impor­tant museums are loca­ted, impos­si­ble to be mis­sed whi­le strol­ling. The back of The Metro­po­li­tan Museum of Art (known as MET) touches the gre­en lungs of the city – Cen­tral Park. With its neo­c­las­si­cal [...]

Glass Guerrilla – the first fire!

I am wri­ting ano­ther book. No more hiding. I dec­la­re to all and that’s all to feel obli­ged and moti­va­ted to eve­ry­day work in the field of wri­ting (God, it is so hard some­ti­mes!). The book will be abo­ut people and things, that is desi­gn fre­aks. Tho­se most inte­re­sting. Uni­que. [...]

Is it good that my book sells in Lidl like hot cakes?

„Beau­ty for eve­ry­one and for eve­ry­day” Wan­da Tela­kow­ska, 1960. Last week has been very inte­re­sting. Ah! To say more, it could be a mine of infor­ma­tion abo­ut our emo­tions for a socio­lo­gi­st, and for me an impor­tant moment! In my pro­fes­sio­nal life I’ve had the [...]

Two weeks in a life of a collector

Wat­ching and exa­mi­ning the mega­trends that sur­ro­und us are parts of my eve­ry­day routi­ne. Then I fore­ca­st sty­li­st trends of new­ly cre­ated pro­ducts – as pre­ci­se as possi­ble. That’s my job and I like that. Very much. I can see for­th­co­ming chan­ges and bear in mind the­ir [...]

When none knows what it’s all about, it’s all about money or 5 principal dilemmas of a beginner collector.

Icons on blan­kets, rari­ties on your grandma’s cup­bo­ard, sur­pri­ses from the Inter­net – a hunt for bar­ga­ins! That’s what we like best. Bar­ga­ins! It’s them that seem to be the big­ge­st dri­ving for­ce of the col­lec­tor mar­ket. Do they real­ly bring a return of the inve­st­ment? [...]

People and things

I’ve always been regar­ded as an eccen­tric. Both at home and at work. I did not make it up, I just usu­al­ly like doing things dif­fe­ren­tly. That’s it! May­be that’s why I can see typi­cal things in a way they appe­ar to be unu­su­al. May­be that’s why appa­ren­tly ordi­na­ry people, in my [...]
