Nasz, meaning “ours” in Polish, is an exhibition whose goal is to shed light on Polish design. Polish organization Culture.pl approached designers Tomek and Gosia Rygalik, partners of Studio Rygalik in Warsaw, to put together this project as curators. They partnered with renowned Polish designers, graphic designers, and illustrators, as well as talented design students and craftsmen to produce a collection of modern everyday life objects. Coat racks, chairs, tables, dish sets, toys and textiles: the designers succeeded in creating a cohesive collection of simple yet useful and playful products that undoubtedly could cross centuries.

The king of the show? A king indeed – King Lizard, an articulated toy composed of wooden pieces bounded together by leather. So smooth and flexible that you can put it on your shoulder and feel like a jungle adventurer!

Other wooden toys also made the show such as a ladybird composed of several wooden magnets that you can assemble and dissemble like a puzzle, leaving room for imagination. Some kids at the exhibition had such a great time playing with it that they almost ran away with it! No doubt you would have been tempted to do the same.
