Willa Wincent’s interior tells the story of Gdynia’s modernist design.
We looked for inspiration in local architecture, exhibitions portraying the creation of the city and close contact with the Historic Preservation Officer. The outcome is a unique color palette, materials and textures used in our interiors.
We’ve also mixed new furniture designed by Maciek Ryniewicz and Rafał Kaletowski with limited-editions of Polish design classics brought back to life by Politura. One of them is the Byk (Bull) chair by Edmund Homa – a distinguished architect and designer who spent most of his life in Gdynia.
