Something old, something new.
The district of Zabłocie on the southern tip of Poland is a quaint place with an industrial attitude that goes all the way back to the mid-19th century. The district used to house some of the most iconic factories in the history of Poland that included the enamelware factory of Oskar Schindler enamelware factory and the building of the Telpod factory from the times of the Polish People’s Republic. Standing near the borders of Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Zabłocie is home to the Museum of Contemporary Arts which attracts Kraków’s creative community.
The building, now the headquarters of Pride and Glory Interactive agency is a former 100-year old cable factory. With a total surface area of 800 sq mt., the new setup created by Morpho Studio of Poland is made out of open spaces for work, and several conference rooms for meetings. Morpho has created the space the creative agency in such a way that the new design retains the outlook of the industrial space that it is built around. Not only so, but the place is also aptly furnished so that it gives the homely setting for it to co-exist with its century-old history while being cosy enough for setting the right mood for work.
The interior design has attained most of its originality by absorbing as much wood as possible that came out of the demolition of the old property. The award display shelves have been made out of ladders, woodwork in the conference room inspires from the wooden pieces that were found in the barns… and the shelves and reception desk and some of the tables are made out of wooden boards that came out from the demolition of the 100-year old factory.
