Palarnia” is the seventh and May (2013) design in the collection called “XII”, entirely designed by Karina Wiciak.
Palarnia (in Polish means “Smoking room” ) is a place decorated primarily by smoke. It adds mystery to the interiors by making them more theatrical. It can also act as an effective screen for people looking for intimacy in the billows of white puff. The smoke can be compared to night clouds cast over the sky, mysterious fog illuminated with the moonlight or can be simply seen as cigarette smoke by those who miss the times when smoking in pubs was not prohibited… Free interpretations abound here and the setting may provide screenplay writers with food for thought.
About the collection “XII”
The collection “XII” will consist of 12 thematic interior designs, together with furniture and fittings, which in each part will be interconnected, not only in terms of style, but also by name. Each subsequent design will be created within one month, and the entire collection will take one year to create.
Here, visualization is to constitute more than a design, which is thrown away after implementation of the interior design, but mainly an image, which has a deeper meaning and can function individually.
The author’s assumption was not to create trite, fashionable interiors, but non-standard places, full of symbols and metaphors, at the borderline between architecture and scenography.
Due to their nature, these are mostly commercial interiors, intended for use and reception by a larger group of people. Yet, it was not supposed to be an art gallery, in which art is merely watched, but places in which it could be put into use and to do virtually everything – depending on the purpose and function of the premises.
The author of the collection did not strive to artificially ascribe ideology to random ideas, but rather to make the entire design readable and coherent, and at the same time to design every item specifically for the given interior. The “Palarnia” design includes also chair “Flaga” (which in Polish means “flag”), a hanging lamp “Nit” (rivet) and table “Nitowany” (riveted).
