The project designed to show the richness and diversity of creation in various regions of Poland, presents the objects in glass boxes located in three venues in public space in Brussels. These boxes, illuminated at night, are available 24/7. Their minimalistic and subtle form, made of wood and plexiglass, recall a television that catches our eye and invites to discover the uniqueness of Polish design.
