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 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 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 the apartment are mostly in neutral hues and raw surfaces. The wooden floor is plain, there are 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 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!
