The largest design fair in Europe - Warsaw Home - it's a wrap!

The largest design fair in Europe - Warsaw Home - it's a wrap!

No other trade fair event in this industry develops as intensively and uses time for designer meetings as effectively. The sixth edition was visited by nearly 50,000 guests, most of them industry representatives!

The number of exhibitors was also record-breaking – in all 5 exhibition halls we could see the offers of over 600 exhibitors!

Together, this gives an area of ​​125,000 square meters – more than 14 football fields!

The star of this year’s Warsaw Home was Karim Rashid – one of the most creative designers of his generation. He has over 4,000 projects in his portfolio, for which he has won over 300 industry awards. His works can be found in over 40 countries.

Karim gave an inspiring lecture: the main idea of ​​which was that each of us is unique, can give the world unique beauty and extraordinary design – if you dare to do so. An important aspect of Karim’s projects in recent years is also the idea of ​​“6xR” – Refuse, reduce, repair, reuse, recycle, revolutionize”. The artist also recalled the fruitful cooperation with exhibitors who were also present at the Warsaw Home fair.

During this year’s Warsaw Home fair, archiDAY workshops were held on an area of ​​almost 2400 m2 in hall E. This year, the organizers focused on the practical aspects of the work of an architect and designer, offering listeners free workshops on the four most commonly used design software in the industry. In professionally prepared rooms, architects and designers had the opportunity to improve their skills with programs such as SketchUp + V-Ray, CAD Decor PRO, Archicad, Twinmotion and pCon.Planner. Over 1,200 professionals registered for the workshops. The workshop was accompanied by a sensory exhibition presenting the most interesting works resulting from the Paradyż Designers 2021 competition prepared by the patron of this year’s archiDAY – Paradyż Academy.

Studio Zięta, known in the industry, prepared the GENERATIONS exhibition.

It is a narrative about the utility potential of generative design. A juxtaposition of functional objects with the exploration of their material possibilities. The main area of ​​Oskar Zięta’s search is steel, but his original FiDU technology is also used in the case of other metals, such as aluminum or copper.

The works presented at Warsaw Home are the result of many years of studies on the properties of metal and the use of new technologies in design. These sensual objects-sculptures are present at the Pompidou Center in Paris or Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich and awarded with world-renowned awards such as the Red Dot Award, Product Design 2021 or the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award.

Unique objects are ready to be implemented in public or private space.

Another important substantive element of the Expo was the Bathroom Summit conference.

What will the future of our bathrooms look like? What creates it? What changes in technology and design will we have to make to adapt to the changes to come. The answers to these elementary questions were heard during a three-day conference organized by Vinderen as part of the Warsaw Home & Contract fair in October at Ptak Warsaw Expo 2022.

Bathroom Summit is not only an idea of a “bathroom in three days”. A number of experts in the field of architecture, design and interior finishing were invited to cooperate. As a result, the recipients received a huge dose of knowledge in various fields. Lectures on marketing and business in the bathroom industry, trends and good practices of the designer, knowledge in the field of interior finishing and technology are just a few examples of numerous topics that were discussed during the conference.

Important aspects were also ecology and the economic situation in the world. The organizers entered into a dialogue with the audience, together emphasizing and analyzing their direct impact on the bathroom industry.

Thanks to the use of virtual reality, the Bathroom Summit Gallery stand was created – a space treated as an interactive product catalog, created with the use of AR technology, using elements of the real world and a virtual presentation of real products. Based on the real dimensions of the rooms, precise three-dimensional visualizations of bathrooms were created.

Many exhibitors drew attention to the increased number of exhibitors and visitors from Europe and the world. The Warsaw Home fair was a platform for Turkish, Malaysian, Lithuanian, Uzbek and Ukrainian national exhibitors, giving the opportunity to meet potential clients and contractors from the Central and Eastern region of the European Union.

An infinite number of reports on social media confirms that the Warsaw Home fair is a feast for the eyes and an endless amount of visual impressions for visitors.

Many guests stopped by the exceptionally beautiful exhibitions of Ciarko Design, Wersal, Olta, Befame and Kler.

Next year’s edition of Warsaw Home is planned for November 7-10, 2023.
In spring, we also invite you to the Warsaw Home Gift & Deco Fair, which will take place on March 23-25.
