Returning to Poland after decades abroard – living in New York (directing during 30 years the ceramics department at Parsons School), Israel and Brazil – legendary ceramist Marek Cecula heads the new Ćmielów Design Studio – within the historical factory’s walls. Bringing in his own Modus Design Studio team to create contemporary additions to the manufacturer’s extensive gamut, the designer’s true passion is to foster this new venture as a cultural platform and offer educational programmes such as Art Food, Link to the industry… “We invite talented creatives and promising students to develop projects at our a telier,” Cecula describes. “We are here to create new products for a new generation of people fascinated by design in Poland and the world.” Developing collections such as the New Atelier or Ergo tea sets, Cecula interprets modernists aesthetics but also plays with the nature of mass production versus limited edition cum bespoke craft.
