It’s official! / Jest papierek!

Hooray! After months of hard work, I am thrilled to let you know that I received my Diploma in Professional Interior Design from the National Design Academy, together with two Certificates in: Perspective Drawing and Decorative Paint Finishes.

What’s more, I received maximum number of points from each of the 12 graded Assignments which makes me even happier 🙂

So what now? Well, life continues as normal but who knows what’s around the corner 🙂

In the meantime, expect a short review of my time in Poland last week and some photos of our new flat.

Design for life – episode 6 final! / odcinek 6 ostatni!

And so it happened. Here is the last episode of Design for life with Philippe Starck. Did you guess who’s going to win? 🙂

And what do I think about it… controversial? Yes. Interesting? Indeed. Showing design thinking out of the box? Definitely so.

I do hope you liked the series as much as me.

No i koniec. Ponizej ostatni odcinek Design for life z Philippem Starckiem. Zgadliscie kto wygral? 🙂

A co ja mysle o programie… Kontrowersyjny? Tak. Ciekawy? A jakze. Pokazujacy zupelnie inny wymiar dezajnu? Jak najbardziej.
Mam nadzieje ze ta seria podobala Wam sie tak samo jak mi.

Designers at V&A / Projektanci w V&A

I missed Kelly Hoppen. Yup. It happened. And it seems I’ll miss Lulu Guinness tomorrow and even Cath Kidston in November! Aaaarghh!

What am I talking about? I’m talking about the Friday Evening Talks at Victoria & Albert Museum, about which you can read here. The Talks feature artists, writers and designers talking about their work and inspiration. When I visited the Telling Tales exhibition recently (yes, I will finally get round to writing about it as it was A-MA-ZING) I took the leaflet with events, but to my perish I only flicked through it two days ago..

…and it turned out there was a talk by my guru Kelly Hoppen just 2 weeks ago… and even though Miss Lulu is only to appear tomorrow, and Miss Cath in two weeks, there is no chance to see either of them, as all tickets are obviously sold out and though I’m on the waiting list, I was not given much hope…

But I managed to get a ticket for a talk by Konstantin Grcic, an industrial designer behind these objects:

Konstantin Grcic is an award-winning industrial designer whose work includes objects for Capellini, Iitalia, Krup and Muji. He is also the curator of the Serpentine Gallery’s forthcoming show, Design Rea. His own work is pared-down and combines formal strictness with mental acuity and humour. He discuss the ideas behind the exhibition and his career with Alice Rawsthorn, design critic for the International Herald Tribune.

So, hopefully this will be as inspiring as all that I’ve missed and will miss…

…who am I kidding, I’m still in despair!
