“must have” is a poll, in which the best Polish implementation, coming from Polish designers and producers, reflecting the most important trends in Polish design are awarded. It is a gratuitous quality label, which may be used by Polish companies both nationally and internationally. It was created to popularize good Polish design and consequently, to promote native business and designers. “must have” is a peculiar consumers’ recommendation – it is worth having the awarded object.
The exhibition was presented during the biggest Brazilian festivals devoted to modern design, i.e. Sao Paulo Design Weekend Project, and is a continuation of “The Spirit of Poland” initiative, pioneered at grassroots by creators of industrial design, whose aim is to introduce values and potential of works of Polish designers to international audiences. The exhibits were chosen in connection with the idea: spirit/soul of a material that in turn originated in the cycle “The Spirit of Poland.” The set of exhibits included work with natural resources and various types of treatments created by humans. An important part of choosing the products was a relation between the manual work and computer-aided technology.

The award for “tooting one’s horn in a Silesian way by wearing jewellery,” i.e. having courage to introduce hard coal to fashion. After ages of being extracted, “black gold from Silesia” is not only put into furnaces, but also enters the high society. Nomination for original promotion of the region by means of hard coal jewellery.
Nagroda za biżuterię z węgla przyznana za próbę odbanalizowania utylitarnego materiału jakim jest węgiel. Nagrodzona biżuteria jest rzeźbiarsko przetworzoną bryłą węgla, która pozwala zauważyć architektoniczne podejście do przedmiotu. Autorki udowadniają, że błędem jest szukać wartości regionu daleko. Węgiel zawsze był. Węgiel ogrzewa i daje energię. Węgiel jest potrzebny. Węgiel jest potrzebny. Węgiel jest piękny.
Limited edition of hard coal jewellery was designed at the request of Agata Wojtkiewicz for her EON spring/summer 2013 collection showed at Fashion Week Poland in Łódź.
