For the second time we visited the Katowice interior fairs where the largest Polish and foreign companies related to design and architecture presented their products and services.
This year, the backlit onyx cladding, all mat surfaces and finishes, bronze and copper sink taps, and interesting furniture matching minimalist interiors turned out to be particularly interesting. We were very positively surprised by the ready-made Vigo kitchen projects. The stone top extended onto the dining table made a huge impression. Made of one piece of wood and covered with amber in the center, it was a hit at the exhibition. Apart from the exhibitions themselves, interviews with famous architects such as Robert Konieczny were also conducted.
It is also worth mentioning the facility itself where the fair was held. The International Congress Center in Katowice was completed in 2015 and has been welcoming guests from all over the world ever since. The project was created in the renowned Warsaw architectural studio JEMS. The main congress hall, which can accommodate up to 10,000 people, is periodically used for this type of event. In addition to it, there are 3 smaller rooms and the facility itself has a direct underground corridor with the Spodek.
In the neighborhood you must see the building of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (NOSPR) and enjoy a weekend concert in a large hall. You can also walk along the underground tunnels of the Silesian Museum, which is already open and offers visitors a story about the history of the local mining.
