TRN Collection

Calligraphic forms, bold colors, fine materials and craft techniques. The new TRN collection of Pani Jurek is a homage to the art of Jan Tarasin.

A fascination with Jan Tarasin paintings and graphics was a starting point for the creation of the whole collection. Tarasin was interested in the world of objects. He began with a realistic record of objects that he simplified and reduced until a system of abstract signs was formed. In her latest collection, Pani Jurek reverses this process, turning ideograms into things again. Her three dimensional objects have a simple calligraphic form so they can play and talk together as if they were letters from a non-existent alphabet.

Looking for the form of an object, placing things in the space or building the relation between them, is all “visual thinking” to me. I am also a painter by education and picture thinker. I believe we all are. Furnishing the apartment or setting the table, more or less consciously, means that everyday we are creating an infinite number of compositions, that all refer to our sense of harmony and proportion - Magda Jurek

There are 5 models of side tables in the collection, 4 types of mirrors and ceramic lighting fixtures, whose single elements can be arranged into the compositions. The hand crafted process of glazing ceramics and furniture making gives the collection a truly unique character. Each piece is one of a kind.

The furniture is made in cooperation with Square Drop, conservative lab and bespoke furniture studio. Hand crafted in solid ash wood, with traditional cabinet making techniques, the furniture is wood stained and covered with natural wax. Ceramic lighting fixtures are finished with brass elements.

The collection is made for residential and commercial spaces. Objects can be arrange together like blocks of a puzzle, but, due to their sculptured look, they also suit perfectly as single accent pieces in a private apartment.
