Stanisław Czarnocki is a young talents who learns how to subtract, rather than add. Adverse to the design industry’s obsession with novelty, Warsaw-native and ECAL – École cantonale d’Art de Lausanne Masters student, Czarnocki believes in the true value of normal objects – clear and functional forms. “The world is filled with too many products,” the young furniture designer defends. “Superficial attractions of little to no use designed with short-term goals, to stimulate our desire for possession.” Instead, he constantly looks for simple solutions and the reduction of excess. Paying close attention to every detail, his designs follow a transparent process. His latest project, A Chair, results from an extensive research into the most comfortable and formally straightforward backrests and connections. Foldable, flat-packed and stackable attributes allow this manifesto of a chair to be easily assembled. “The term normal is an answer for all products.”
