Bez Tytułu Restaurant
Without a title and with undefined function, this ambiguous object has many possible uses. The upturned feature invites to interact, while leaving space for interpretation. The simplicity of form reveals the beauty of the material and its qualities. Copper is precious and elegant, and its antiseptic properties match it perfectly with food. It can be used as a amuse-bouche serving piece, as well as a multipurpose coaster or pure decoration. Natural ageing process will change the object with time. Every touch will leave a trace, making the piece more and more precious, unique and personal. Produced in numbered edition of 100.
Kunstgewerbe Museum Dresden
Creative Collisions in Kunstgewerbe Museum in Dresden is a result of a workshop led by Tomek and Gosia Rygalik with participants from Syria, Lybia, Germany, Austria and Poland. The chairs created during the workshop are personal manifestos of each of the participants comming from different cultural backgrounds. A long table designed by Studio Rygalik is at the heart of this exhibition. The piece reflects upon the table as a universal metaphor for getting together, getting in touch and sharing. It is a place where friendships are made – a perfect reason for the Friends of the State Art Collections to acquire this object for the Museum.

Glass is Tomorrow
Nude Glass / Şişecam
5th ‘Glass is Tomorrow’ workshop, inside the production facilities of one of the world’s top three home glassware manufacturers, the ‘Sişecam Group’ in Denizli, Turkey. the workshop aimed to push the boundary of technique, process, material, and aesthetics (the appreciation of glass as a creative medium). Glass is Tomorrow is an european network which aims at establishing a more fluid exchange of knowledge and competencies between glass and design professionals in Europe. the project hopes to open up new potentialities and to generate dialogue about the conception, production and distribution of contemporary glass works.
The Glass is Tomorrow workshop in Denizli apart from being a week of intense work was a fantastic social experience and a great cultural exchange. We got to learn a lot about various glass blowing techniques, in particular the free blowing and moulding. We used both of them, as well as modification of existing moulds from the Pasabace factory, to create 6 new projects, that explore the use and properties of glass in different ways.

Siemens, Concordia Taste
Culinary station created in collaboration with Siemens for Concordia Taste – restaurant in the heart of one of the most important design centers in Poland. Studio Rygalik designed this open kitchen as a system of interrelated mobile modules resembling wooden cargo boxes on casters, so it can be easily rearranged and adapted to different functional needs. FoodLab creates space for live cooking, culinary workshops, tastings or parties. It is equipped with technologically advanced and eco friendly studioLine built-in appliances.

Collection of seemingly abstract objects. They resemble odd creatures but serve for specific purposes. In fact, it’s a cleverly designed system. The basic structure is always the same – a freestanding frame consisting of a ring supported on four legs. This is completed by set of different attachments that turn the frame into different functional objects.
Przemiany Festival, Copernicus Science Centre
Designed by Gosia Rygalik as part of the ‘6×6′ project where designers were paired up with local craftsmen. The cabinet was created as a response to the need of a very busy dressmaker and a result of a dialogue between the designer and the user. Designed in every detail and built to last, filled up with colourful spools the cabinet should become essential for the visual identity of the dressmaker’s workshop and an important tool in her everyday work. The cabinet with spools resembling a pixelated low-res screen came as an inspiration to create an abstract stop motion animation.
Vienna Design Week
Food thrown away in Vienna could feed half of the population of Graz. The project’s aim was to start a discussion about food waste. It was also to show that the materials to build from are all around us. The tables were made from stale baguettes that were supposed to be thrown away. These bread structures were part of a “bread experience” created by Gosia and Tomek Rygalik at the Vienna Design Week Laboratory, where people were surrounded by bread eating bread dishes from bread tables.
This peculiar bench was built by Gosia and Tomek Rygalik in the process of “conversation” with parts found in the abandoned farm near Dłużew in central Poland. It is meant for individual outdoor use with your favourite drink or cigarette at hand, while contemplating nature.
