We are in a beautiful, wide space in Stalowa street – one of the prettiest and still underrated streets of Warsaw’s Praga district. We have an impression that Stalowa could equally be located in Berlin’s Neukolln. It is easy to believe, especially when we look at it while drinking a filter coffee and eating a thick slice of fresh bread with country butter from the Rano Bakery (Eng. Morning Bakery), which opened in July.
With a grain of his own unique contrariness, he readily emphasizes that in case of Category 5 hurricane, he would remain sitting in his living room, eating peanuts and contemplating nature’s frenzy. Meet Rodrigo Larios, architect, artist and master in living.
Her plates and bowls from the “Wave” collection have been all over social media in the past weeks. These pastel blue, pink and light blue pieces evoke summer paradise or the endless sky during the sunsets – that is everything we miss so much in Poland during winter. These projects come from Mua Studio, made by Katia Romanowska.
In the current issue of the USTA Magazine you can read an interview with Andrzej Bargiel, the first man to ski down the Broad Peak in Karakorum. Few years ago he left everyone behind in the prestigious Elbus Race in extreme class. Last summer he established a new record in the fastest conquest of the five highest peaks of the former USSR. Andrzej tells us about the hardships, the turning points and the reasons why it is worth going alone in the mountains and live there day by day.
Collectors in Poland – we checked what they are gathering, and why and how much their collections gain in value. We described people with a broad spectrum of interests, ranging from Scandinavian design, GDR glass, and Polish photography to plastic beads and toys from Olympia flea market. In the new USTA Magazine we bring you interviews with specialists in collecting like Maurycy Gomulicki or Adam Leja.
After months of intense work we can proudly announce that we have opened our own bistro. We serve vegan food, third wave coffee, orange wines and we have a small greenhouse with succulents, and artisanal ceramics – everything we love most gathered in one place. This is our Eden. Come visit us in Saska Kępa!
