Today we’re welcoming you to an interdisciplinary Polish artist’s Aleksandra Laska’s Studio. For years she was involved a lot into interior design, but her portfolio also includes a long association with the Grand Theatre and National Opera, for which she designed the graphics and scenery for numerous plays and created interiors to famous Polish people. “I have a big ease and lightness in organizing professional space itself” – says the artist. “Sometimes my concepts and the stubborn clients collide and create a hard struggle. So I fight – with stylistic coherence.”
Aleksandra’s Warsaw apartment doesn’t really look like a usual living space, it is more like a studio or an art gallery. On the wall behind her there’s a huge-scale photograph in black and white by Leni Riefenstahl which is called “Women of the tribe of the Nuba”. Materials and textures all over apartment are mostly in a neutral hues and raw surfaces. The wooden floor is plain, there’s bits of concrete and rusty metal details and the furniture is a mix of totally different styles and decades. What makes it important and different from many other apartments – it’s the art and decor pieces, that breathe in the artistic environment feeling into a residential space. And the art in this apartment is not modern paintings, as it’s usual to see in a nowadays luxurious interiors, but it’s – sculptures, antique architecture details, oversized photographs and even Alexander Calder mobiles. The whole interior is made as open-planned as possible. Even the bathroom has two walls and curtains. Take a look at this space, and enjoy the start of your week!
