Longevity, resourcefulness and quality materials define Gosia and Tomek Rygalik’s practice but are values that don’t limit the scope of projects they take on– from furniture, food and spatial design. Well-known for their collaboration with major international brands like Moroso and Vitra, the Warsaw-based duo have spent the past few years reinvigorating out-of-touch Polish industries by infusing design brands (Comforty, Paged, Noto…). They recently curated Nasz for Culture.pl in New York, “an exclusive collection of contemporary design that consists of items designed and manufactured in Poland.” Studio Rygalik is one the driving forces behind this country’s emerging design scene. Tomek heads Academy of Fine Arts Warsaw ’s PG13 programme – producing some of the brightest up-and-coming talents. In tune with his philosophy, the radical course in stills essentialist principles, strong hand-working skills and active research methods. Like his students, he believes in actual prototyping rather than elongated processes and draws inspiration from unique solutions discovered during the couple’s travels. “We’re rationalists, not dreamers, our designs need to have good reasoning,” Gosia describes. “Buying wine in France takes a long time as we’re very selective.” “Our critical filter is getting tighter and tighter,” Tomek adds.
