+48 Social Club

Hayakawa/Kowalczyk has designed temporary cafe–exhibition '+48 Social Club' which was operational for one week between October and November within the framework of this year's Tokyo Designers Week.

The exhibition was a pretext to present Polish design and cultural life in the most
unpretentious, informal atmosphere, as well as an invocation of the history of Polish
design, which is returning in the works of young contemporary designers and artists.

The project was developed together with Adam Mickiewicz Institute and Design Critique Platform from Warsaw.
