Who are we?
We are a team of enthusiasts who aim to continue the magnificent history of Polish design and applied arts, while also emphasizing its social engagement. We believe that users of public and private spaces should have the right to shape them in a way that is functional, friendly, aesthetic, and accessible. We consider the impact of how these spaces can be changed, adapted, familiarized, and shared.
A few years ago we created an organization called nowyodel.org which puts selected designs of modern furniture and other equipment into production. We also bring back to life design "pearls" from the past, i.e. furniture designed by outstanding artists which has never been produced or has been forgotten, but is now a design classic. We promote Polish design, craftsmanship and the broadly defined applied and visual arts. We promote and popularize knowledge about these fields and their creators by organizing exhibitions, meetings and debates.
We believe in sharing skills, which is why we regularly conduct practical workshops in various fields of design, craft, applied arts, and visual arts, as well as design and technology and material consultations for enthusiasts, students, and practitioners. At Nowy Model we are oriented at Polish design, applied arts, visual arts, crafts, and design.
We are convinced that it was years ago and still can be one of the most valuable national assets. We cultivate its best traditions, and entrust the production to native, reliable craftsmen and small businesses. We believe that good design should be available to everyone. We believe that our actions serve both to increase civic awareness and to make a real difference to the environment: both private and public.
What are our goals?
- Promotion of design, culture and Polish economy abroad and support for cultural, scientific and economic exchange with other countries.
- Creating and popularizing a positive image of Poland in the country and abroad, strengthening its international prestige and economic position.

Krzesło DUNE w Muzeum Śląskim
Do stałej kolekcji Muzeum Śląskiego trafiło krzesło projektu Cyryla Zakrzewskiego. Krzesło DUNE to oryginalne i wygodne krzesło, które jest równocześnie niezwykłym obiektem rzeźbiarskim. Do jego stworzenia artystę zainspirowały piaskowe wydmy, łagodne łuki oraz wrażenie ruchu spowodowane wiecznie przesypującym się piaskiem. Przeniesione na grunt sztuki użytkowej, zaowocowały nadzwyczaj ciekawym i dekoracyjnym obiektem, który nada wyjątkowego charakteru każdej przestrzeni. Krzesło DUNE wykonane jest ze sklejki brzozowej, ręcznie rzeźbione i wykończone naturalnym olejem.

„Zarówno „Nexus”, jak i „Noise”, składające się na kolekcję „Continuum”, są wynikiem fascynacji Cyryla Zakrzewskiego naturą, ale też są widomym świadectwem poznania przez niego, i co najważniejsze, zastosowania, najnowszych osiągnięć technologicznych. Nie bez znaczenia jest w tym miejscu wsparcie technologiczne i wieloletnia już współpraca z Fundacją NowyModel. Ten mariaż pozwolił Cyrylowi Zakrzewskiemu uzyskać niespodziewane możliwości twórcze. Sypany, różnobarwny plastik z recyclingu umożliwia mu kreowanie płaszczyzn o dowolnym wzorze. Zadziwiająco „naturalnym” w swej plastikowej sztuczności” A.Saraczyńska

Rajmund Teofil Halas' bookcase (reissue: Nowyodel ) at the exhibition: "Design. Poznan Unveiling".
The exhibition presents an image of material culture from the perspective of Poznan artists. During cross-sectional shows, the contribution of this community to the culture of our country is often forgotten. Few people outside the trade associate Bogusława and Czesław Kowalski's 1960s furniture set with Poznań, as well as Rajmund Hałas's contemporary furniture experiments from the 1950s or Aleksander Kuczma's postmodern experiences of the 1990s.

Collaboration on the premiere model Circula designed by Tomasz Rygalik, presented in early October in Milan during the WE ARE NATURE exhibition. This exhibition was organised by a recognised Italian designer Rossana Orlandi as part of the international project "Ro Guiltlessplastic 2020".
CIRCULA is a circular bench creating a symbolic and functional space for integration and exchange of ideas. It is a non-standard project in every aspect, requiring close cooperation of several teams at every stage of creation. The concept, based on the assumptions of the ECO Solidarity initiative run together with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, promotes the ideas of sustainable development and circular economy, advocating an ecological and human-centered approach to design.CIRCULA is made of 100% recycled plastic, thanks to which it fits into the concept of closed-loop design. Importantly, the cycle has not been closed, i.e. if the bench reaches the end of its usefulness stage, we can easily repair or recycle it again.

International promotion of designer Cyril Zakrzewski's work at the prestigious Salone del Mobile.Milano fair and qualifying the DUNE chair of his design to participate in the international competition for young designers SaloneSatellite as part of Salone del Mobile.Milano.
Cyryl Zakrzewski has created a unique collection of furniture, which with its aesthetic values and technological solutions promote an ecological approach to furniture production and show nature and natural processes as an inexhaustible source of solutions, both aesthetic and structural. The designer has focused on modern technological solutions that make it possible to transfer certain elements from nature into the human living space. The main material used here is natural hardwood plywood processed with CNC in order to obtain unusual forms inspired by geological phenomena. The furniture is characterized by a unique design combining functionality with strong sculptural elements obtained by the CNC method. By combining artistic and sculptural sensitivity with comprehensive knowledge of woodworking and finishing techniques as well as CAD and CNC techniques, Cyril Zakrzewski has created a unique, aesthetically and materially coherent set of modern furniture.

SaloneSatellite was the first international design event to focus on young designers, immediately becoming a platform to meet and collaborate with producers, curators and the most promising young designers. Since 1998, it has been collaborating and taking place as part of the prestigious Salone del Mobile.Milano. SaloneSatellite focuses on the creative potential of designers under the age of 35. Many of the prototypes presented in previous editions have gone into production, and many of the 10,000 designers who have participated over the years, along with 270 international design schools, have gone on to gain recognition and be among the best designers. The challenge for SaloneSatellite has always been to imagine the shape of future design and to try to imagine how future generations will develop a new balance between design, function and beauty. Cyril Zakrzewski's organic, natural utility-sculpture objects were part of this spirit and this search for a new ideal form.
The world premiere of bionic furniture designed by Cyril Zakrzewski has brought him recognition in the eyes of critics and design specialists, receiving many positive reviews:
Realization of the educational and popularization project - a series of design workshops and a lecture on the history of Polish design - for the Creative Haven - Cieplice Cultural Centre in Jelenia Góra:
- Agnieszka Kula, graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, participant and author of many group exhibitions and an individual exhibition Camera Obscura, awarded in the competition "Towards an Imaginary Dialogue", for many years has been conducting creative workshops in cooperation with the Foundation Nowyodel.org
- Furniture Design - designing and creating functional furniture as small works of art - conducted by Cyryl Zakrzewski, sculptor, designer, graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, treats design as an aesthetic and functional form, but not necessarily devoid of hidden reflection on the surrounding world.
- Biżuu design - conducted by Kornelia Starczewska, a graduate of Da Vinci High School in Poznań, student of Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, instructor of activities and art workshops for children in Suchy Las Art Zone, cultural animator cooperating with Nowymodel Foundation.
- Panel discussion with Agata Saraczyńska (art critic and collector, cultural journalist, curator of design and applied arts exhibitions) and Julia Starczewska-Zakrzewska (board member of Nowyodel Foundation): "Polish Design after 1989". The meeting was devoted to the development of Polish design over the last 30 years, how artists, creators and designers fared in the 1990s, at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, and how they look for their own distinction today.
bookcase of changing heights designed by prof Rajmund T. Halas realized by nowyodel.org at the exhibition "On the other side of things. Polish Design after 1989" exhibition at the National Museum in Krakow.
The exhibition presents the changes in Polish design after 1989. It shows how artists fared in the 1990s under the conditions of nascent capitalism, how their works were influenced by postmodernism, how, at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, they began to fit in with international design trends and how they are now seeking their own individuality in order to compete on foreign markets.
In the Nowy Model Foundation. we combine a modern approach to design and design, a search for new trends and solutions, with respect for the tradition of Polish furniture making. We try to recreate a small fragment of the iconic landscape of Polish design. We are particularly keen on pieces of furniture that, due to historical circumstances, were never put into production, that were forgotten and abandoned, but today - thanks to their unique design - are classics of design. Such as the Variable Height Shelving designed by Prof. Rajmund T. Hałas.

KOWALSKICH CHURCH at the exhibition "Tango on 16 square meters" at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art (14.07 - 14.10.2018).
Tango on 16 square meters is an exhibition about a kind of residential gymnastics - a brilliant and well-planned choreography, but at the same time a truly acrobatic feat. It documents the ingenuity that has to be demonstrated in the search for architectural solutions in the conditions of housing, space and material scarcity. The project refers to the shape of the residential space during the communist era, which recurs in contemporary development practices. It refers to the movie "Tango" by Zbigniew Rybczyński, as well as to the current design standards and the popular "furniture wall". At the exhibition, in addition to the legendary set of wall units designed by Bogusława and Czesław Kowalski during the communist era, there will be an opportunity to see a chair designed by a married couple of Poznań designers, which was originally an integral part of the wall unit, but never went into production. Only thanks to the New Model was it reconstructed and since 2014 it is available on the market.

A CHANGING HEIGHT bookcase designed by Prof. Rajmund T. Hałas, realized by nowyodel.org at the exhibition "Elementarz polskiego dizajnu", presenting 100 most important Polish design projects of the last century.
The exhibition, organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute with funds from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the "Independence" program, was held as part of the Gdynia Design Days festival.
Preparation of the Kowalski Chair exhibition at SH Studio Szadkowski i Henschke in Warsaw. The classic chair, designed by a famous couple of Poznań-based designers and interior architects Bogusława and Czesław Kowalski, was originally part of their legendary furniture set during the communist era, but was never put into production. It was only thanks to the Nowyodel Foundation that it gained its material shape. It is a perfect example of how the vision of modernity from over 60 years ago, thanks to its simplicity, ergonomics, and innovation, is still valid, and how Polish design is an important element of our common identity.
Co-organization of the exhibition "Record. Rajmund Teofil Halas" (curator - Prof. Katarzyna Laskowska) in the Design Gallery of UAP in Poznań dedicated to Rajmund T. Halas, founder of the Department of Industrial Design at the State College of Fine Arts in Poznań and lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture and Design at the Poznan university. The aim of the exhibition was to present the creative and didactic phenomenon of Prof. Halas, who was an important figure not only for the development of his alma mater but, above all, plays a significant role in the history of Polish design.
Realization of an educational and exhibition project popularizing Polish design "Nowyodel Corner of Design" in Stary Browar (Old Brewery) in Poznan:

- Design workshops for children led by Cyryl Zakrzewski, sculptor and designer, participant of numerous exhibitions in Poland and abroad (Japan, Italy, Slovenia, Austria), author of permanent installations in public space in Poznan and Tokyo, among others. During the workshop the participants learned how to make an ecological lamp from recycled paper using the papier-mâché method.
Artistic and educational project "Together with Marek Cecula we are looking for Poznań's identity" realized at the Rozruch Gallery in Poznań thanks to a grant from the City of Poznań. The aim of the project was to popularize knowledge of design and material culture and to support the promotion and identification of the city and region by linking the distinctive symbol of Wielkopolska and Poznan with the field of design, and thus with the tradition of design in Wielkopolska:
- An exhibition of modern porcelain designed by Marek Cecula, a world-renowned artist, ceramicist, educator and curator, one of the most charismatic figures of Polish design. The exhibition presents porcelain objects made with the city of Poznan in mind and its promotion by design, referring to the symbolism of the "Poznan dumpling" and its identity significance for the residents of the city.
- The "Design Laundry" workshop, inspired by the plein air work of legendary professor Rajmund Teofil Halas, activates local and university youth by encouraging creative and imaginative problem solving. During the workshop, under the guidance of Marek Cecula, participants faced design tasks related to the identification of the city and its problems.
