ZAMEK Culture Centre

Each year ZAMEK Culture Centre hosts 2500 cultural events. This is one of the largest institutions of this kind in the country. ZAMEK forms a space where visual arts, theatre, film, music and literature intertwine and complement one another.

The new edition of the Map will be published in parallel to an exhibition at ZAMEK, presenting material culture as seen by Poznanian artists. Apart from industrial design objects, the exhibition features projects implemented for particular venues in Poznań, which now form an integral part of Polish design e.g. the furniture by Roman Machowiak for ZAMEK Culture Centre, and by Jan Węcławski for Mercure Hotel or the Monastery of the Dominican Friars in Poznań.

Museum of Applied Arts

The Museum of Applied Arts is the only place in Poland devoted entirely to applied arts from the Middle Ages to the present day. If you want to know more about design, you must visit this venue. It will certainly be worth you time, as the new edition of this Map offers you a special perk: you will have the opportunity to see projects from the Italian “dream factory”, i.e. Alessi, known for its long-standing cooperation with the greatest icons in world of design: Ettore Sottsass, Richard Sapper, Achille Castiglioni, Alessandro Mendini, Aldo Rossi, Michael Graves or Philippe Starck.
