“Stolarnia” is the sixth design in the collection called “XII”, entirely designed by Karina Wiciak. “Stolarnia” (in Polish – Carpenter’s Shop) was inspired by the landscapes of the Bory Tucholskie National Park, near which the author lives and works.
Thus, the forest in itself is a perfect, designer work and no man can invent anything more perfect than the nature itself. So why not transfer that which is perfect and which has already been invented by nature into an interior? Pine trees, the most typical of the Tuchola forests, were used in the restaurant as a modern decoration, yet in a metal form. This is also a way of, and a pretext for, emphasizing the structural elements and fittings.Hills, which are also typical of the Tuchola forests, inspired creation of an undulating, wooden floor.
Some plants (intentionally) cannot bear pressure and bend, giving life to the floor. As everybody knows, not everything in a forest is arranged perfectly, thus this symbolic disorder, which conforms to the natural trends in nature.One could say that pylons do not occur in forests, to say nothing of national parks. Yet, for many years they have been an inherent element of rural landscapes, and thus have integrated and almost blurred with the surrounding nature. And since the pylons are situated near forests, they can also function (as decoration) in a less natural space, which a restaurant is.
The “Stolarnia” design includes also a design of chair and table impaled on nails, entitled “Szpilka” (Polish for pin), as well as a chair and a hocker “Ambona” (which means raised hide), inspired by the shape of a popular forest raised hide.
