Project WARM / COLD by Izabela Wolniaczyk gained the most sympathy of the Jury thanks to the interesting use of ceramic tiles and practically in the whole project, without fear of subsequent niches and platforms. The end result is a 16m2 bathroom salon in a climate of snowy scenery outside the window. The concept of the project is based on combining opposites: a minimalist decor, and a warm colour of light; raw wall cladding on most surfaces, and tile accents referring to the pattern of a soft wool weave. This project proved to be very universal and timeless. Its cohesion and promoting trends in the design of bathrooms, which are to transform into our private SPA, influenced the decision of the Jury. The project uses tiles from the French Braid collection from Opoczno.
The second prize went to Szymon Pleszczak for the project UNTYPICALLY TYPICAL APARTMENT. And here the very original title speaks for itself. This interesting, functional and homely design of a 60 m2 flat for a young marriage was created because the author was not afraid of breaking the stereotype. Because if the apartment is small, it must be bright and in Scandinavian style? Not necessarily. A small apartment can also be decorated in dark colours, it must be, however, skillfully applied. It can also be combined with wood, concrete boards or a soft carpet, all you need is a clearly defined vision. The project uses Lucka Gris tiles (entry zone and kitchen) with light gray fugue and Mattina Grigio brand Cerrad (living room zone) with black fugue.
The third prize this year has a expressive kitchen with a free-standing island. The island is set in a central point with irregular shapes, the designer has repeated the “theme” on the wall. The project by Dawid Żybula is very modern and easy to remember. The kitchen was made in the technology of varnished fronts with milled handles. A solid base is spread on the floor tiles from the collection Carrara Polished Pulpis, which was emphasized with a decorative strip cut from the tiles of the collection Marquinia GPTU601 Carrara Pulpis brand Opoczno. The minimalist style is emphasized by the decorative cavity tiled with a decorative tile Martinica Dekor 2 brand Ceramika Pilch, which was also lined the wall along the kitchen. Decor imitates a fashionable for many years brick in a neutral gray shade.
