Oyster bon ton

Połykać w całości, pozwalając aksamitnej, słonawej zawartości prześlizgnąć się przez usta i spłynąć po języku do gardła, czy też skorzystać z widelczyka i wgryźć się w otoczony delikatnym płaszczem rzęsek żywy byt, uwalniając smak i aromat porannego odpływu o nutach jodu i morskich wodorostów?

Irini’s triple life

How many incarnations can one person have? How many adventures to experience? Irini Karayannopoulou, Greek painter, argues that the more the better. She makes up biographies of herself, how a pirate appropriates adventures and works other artists, rebelling against the commercial use of the female body and image. And it is there one of the most enthusiastic, joyful people we know. We invite you to a meeting with the Greek geyser of fantasy and optimism. We interviewed us in March 2021, but now the Greek artist is opening two exhibitions in Warsaw during the Warsaw Gallery Weekend. (more…)


There is no one ideal femininity. There is no such thing as singular identity. There are no clothes for just one occasion. And no clothes fit everybody in the same way. FW2021/22 collection by Acephala is an ode to individual style and idiosyncratic expression. Living in the world of overproduction and constant temporality, we challenged ourselves to create clothes that could fit in many different closets and stay in those closets for longer than just one season. The collection is a set of garments that are minimalistic and essential yet with a twist that makes them unique - be it either construction, pattern, fabric or detailing. (more…)

Bauhaus apartment

As you ascend the maroon, unique terrazzo staircase, you have the impression that you are stepping back to the turn of the 20/30s, a period full of energy when the Bauhaus spirit was taking over Europe and Warsaw was called the Paris of the North. The "Bauhaus" apartments are located in the Functional House at the intersection of Jakubowska and Estońska streets. The building is a great example of functionalism. The furnishings of the apartment is the result of several years of searching for an appropriate form of interior design for the House. The owners were inspired by the vision of what apartments could have looked like at that time. Original, auction-searched, meticulously restored furniture, designed and made in the spirit of Bauhaus ideas, give the place a unique character. (more…)


Sex? Art? Or Sleep? The legend of Wrocław’s cool generation reveals her recipe for eternal youth. (more…)


Since the first issue of USTA Magazine, we published 21 guides to various cities, in Poland and abroad. We started with a guide to Berlin in the first issue, followed by a guide To Poznan in number two. Still, we have never prepared a guide to Warsaw and we feel we owe the city we know best a proper vademecum. The problem was whom should we include in our selection from among the places we have known inside out and which we have been with from their openings and throughout their complex histories. Warsaw is certainly a pioneer of gastronomy in Poland. How to choose from hundreds or thousands of bistros, bars, restaurants, cafes and top art spots? It took our team several weeks of vivid discussions to come up with the final list of candidates. (more…)
