Kowalskich CHAIR

The presented model is a classic chair designed by the famous Poznań-based couple of designers and interior architects, Bogusława and Czesław Kowalski. It was originally part of their legendary furniture set during the period of the Polish People's Republic (PRL), but it never went into production. It wasn't until newmodel.org that it gained its physical form and has been available on the market since 2014.

This unique chair features a lightweight, slender, and stylish design. Each piece is handcrafted from beechwood and bent plywood veneered with natural chestnut, giving it a distinct shade and grain pattern.

The Kowalski chair is a perfect example of how a vision of modernity from over 60 years ago remains relevant today thanks to its simplicity, ergonomics, and innovation, and how design can be an essential element of our collective identity.

Registered as a community design, it is protected in all European Union countries.



Bogusława and Czesław Kowalski – working together or independently over several decades – have won numerous awards and distinctions.

Their earliest joint achievement was during their studies in March 1956, when they won first prize in a competition for set design for Leopold Staff’s “Godiva,” soon followed by the victory of this production at the nationwide festival of student theaters in Warsaw.

The two most important awards that Bogusława and Czesław won together were the two-time victories in the nationwide furniture design competitions announced by the Union of Polish Artists and the Association of Furniture Industry in 1961-1963 and in 1973. Both awards resulted in subsequent generations of “Kowalski Furniture,” produced in millions throughout the country.

For Czesław, the Award of the City of Poznań for achievements in interior architecture (1966) was certainly important, while for Bogusława – several first prizes won at Cepelia competitions and Poznań Trade Fairs for stylish furniture designs and “wooden accessories” (1970, 1973, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1979).
