Władysław Wołkowski Museum

Branded the Michelangelo of wicker, Władysław Wołkowski belongs to the top twenty Polish designers of the 20th century. He was born in 1902 in Sulisławice. His education started in Śreniawa and continued in the School of Construction Crafts in Kazimierz Dolny. He studied in the faculty of Painting and Interior Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Higher mathematics and nature were his passions. When creating, he drew on combining technology with nature and used natural materials. Wicker, reed, rope and the standard raw materials of folk production became artistic materials in his objects. It is the artistry and timelessness of design that gets highlighted in the chairs, stools and the flower set presented here. We can also see the diploma and the gold medal he got at the International Art and Technology Exhibition in Paris in 1937, platters that got an award in Berlin, and wicker landscapes.
