A recipe for Swedish rolls wrapped with the cinnamon and the chocolate - a recipe for Kanelbullar given by Marta Greber in the first issue of Usta magazine. Since then we regularly come back to it by improving and diversifying it, so we can admire it anew. (more…)

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…)


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…)

Gluten Heaven in Żoliborz

When Monika Walecka bought a family apartment in the Warsaw district of Żoliborz, she started dreaming of opening a local bakery where she would bake bread for her neighbours. She found her place on the ground floor a modernist 4th Warsaw Colony building from 1930. One of the neighbours, Maurycy Gomulicki who lives in the same building, designed a logo for the bakery – a mermaid holding a baguette. This is how "Cała W Mące" (Eng. “Flour-covered”) was born, a bakery that stole the hearts of many people of Warsaw, not only Monika’s neighbours. (more…)

Klopsiki mamusi

The flavour of leniwe (Polish Lazy Dumplings) with salt is in Rutu Modan’s genes. But she had to come to Poland to discover that. An Israeli illustrator tells us why, after all, she decided to get to know the motherland of her ancestors. (more…)

Starting with a simple idea, Aurum Bloom was reimagined through experimenting and an understanding of how our jewellery should look and feel like. (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…)

Souvenirs from the Seaside

Fridge magnets, whistling seagulls, seashell caskets or bracelets with burnt letters with your name – this sort of images pop up in my head when I think of the “souvenirs from the seaside”. It turns out that luckily, one can see the light at the end of this camp tunnel. “Zatoka –  autorskie pamiątki” (Eng. “The Bay – Original Souvenirs”) is an initiative launched by Fundacja Palma. The organisers invited a group of artists from the Tri-city to design souvenirs from the seaside. Finally, you can bring something from your holidays that won’t feel awkward! (more…)

Spokój w skansenie

Nie da się ukryć, że pandemiczne wydarzenia zmieniły nasz sposób życia w mieście, korzystania z knajp, imprezowania. Kiedy myślimy o wyjątkowej kolacji, raczej nie planujemy już tak ochoczo wieczoru z menu degustacyjnym – chcemy czegoś na luzie, pragniemy oddechu. I na tę potrzebę odpowiada świetnie kolektyw KoperBernNowicki, tworząc miejsce spotkań w skansenie w Nowej Suchej oraz inauguracyjne wydarzenie pod nazwą „Uczta Nastroje”. (more…)
