Grand prize

A professional photo shoot by Szymon Brodziak himself and a nationwide ambassador advertising campaign was won by Julia Kilczewska of JK Interiors

Ms Julia Kilczewska’ s competition entry fully met our expectations as a competition committee. On the one hand, it is a stylistically sophisticated work, and on the other hand, on a functional level, it presents a contemporary vision of the living room. The added value is that the concept shows an interior with an artistic character, which fits perfectly with the vision of the competition and the Samsung The Frame product. On the one hand, the TV retains its original character as a device for watching content, but on the other hand, it complements the space by presenting works of art,’ justified the selection of the winning design by the chairman of the jury – Prof. Jan Sikora during the OKK! PR WEBINAR


Equal distinctions were awarded to Katarzyna Kowlaska of Kovvalska Studio, Weronika Fortecka of Fortecka Studio and Łukasz Głogowski of Głogowscy Studio

As the jury’s verdict was justified by arch. Ida Mikołajska of MIKOŁAJSKAstudio with a distinction for Weronika Fortecka – The work presented is an interesting proposal for answering the main slogan of the competition: DO IT YOUR WAY. It is not particularly difficult to incorporate a television set into a space that is based on simple forms – in the so-called ‘modern’ style. However, it is a challenge in more sophisticated interiors. The author of the winning work attempted (with great success) to introduce a Samsung The Frame TV into an interior dominated by curves, expressive textures and natural materials. The living room shown is both elegant and unforced. Such spaces are usually intolerant of any visible electronics in their aesthetics. Here, this has been successfully achieved

In turn, arch. Interiors Małgorzata Liebhert of WZ Studio, highlighting the colourful qualities of the design by Katarzyna Kowalska, said: – “Among the Jury’s voices, looking at this work, it was stated several times that the design is ‘theatrical’. One has the impression that it is a set design, and the chosen frame arouses curiosity as to what is further down the space. The design presented definitely moved the jury and made them think.The juxtaposition of sculpture, stucco and television is intriguing

Also arch. Jacek Tryc of Jacek Tryc Wnętrza in his laudation emphasised the artistic qualities of the last of the awarded projects by Łukasz Głogowski: – The distinction is awarded to an interior design with an atmosphere conducive to the contemplation of works of art and an atmosphere of relaxation. A visitor to this lounge may not realise that the photograph by Szymon Brodziak in the centre of the composition is not a print, but a digital image projected onto a screen. Such a move is extremely valuable in terms of promoting art and higher values

The distinguished works won attractive prizes in the form of image consultancy with communications consultancy provided by one of the most active agencies in the interior design market – OKK! PR and extensive promotional activities in the trade media
