About this event
CSTM: Benjamin Kuna, Jacek Majewski - Startup - Benjamin and Jacek are co-founders of CSTM. They created an application (CSTM), which, thanks to Augmented Reality (AR) technology, allows to plan and design user’s unique furniture. The client can choose the size, shape, and function of the furniture and adjust it to his own needs. CSTM received Best Technical Achievement at the Launch Festival 2014 award ceremony. VZÓR: Jakub Sobiepanek, Michał Woch - Entrepreneur - Founders of brand Vzór, which debuted in June 2012. Jakub, art director in Vzór, graduated from the Faculty of Interior Design at The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Michał, managing director in Vzór, studied at the University of Warsaw and in Italy. Vzór introduced the cult armchair RM58 designed by Roman Modzelewski into the market. It started with Jakub’s master's thesis about revitalizing XXth-century Polish Industrial design. He wanted to implement his idea and created the brand Vzór with Michał. After over half a century since its inception, the RM58 armchair, designed by Roman Modzelewski, made its "re-debut." This time it was prepared for serial production, not only for exhibitions.
