Bread as the bond beyond divisions Julia Kędzierska

Julia Kędzierska presents bread as the intercultural link between nationalities. In its symbolism, it refers to the same needs: to satisfy hunger and spiritual longing, which can be narrated as dreams of a better life. In the description of her project ‘bread in common’, we read that even in as culturally and religiously homogeneous country as Poland, the symbolism and tradition inscribed in bread are identical with other cultures. In effect, it can stand for a bond beyond divisions.

Born in 1994, Julia is a product and visual communication designer by education and passion. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Design in Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. She studied Communication Design at ESAD in Porto and currently lives in Warsaw, where she works as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. 

The artist prepared the brochure that introduces the subject of multiculturalism in Poland. It illustrates basic, universal ingredients necessary for baking bread and presents recipes inspired by nationalities, which are also described in the publication. 

Her project consists of another key component – tools. Julia created a set made of 11 elements that anyone can use to make homemade bread. Each part is versatile and can be used differently in the kitchen. Their design is said to be a result of a careful analysis of the methods of baking bread in different parts of the world.

Marta Rzepińska and her naturally produced crayons Bubel Way to recycle leftover kitchen materials

Contemporary Lynx Team Jan 19, 2022

Marta Rzepińska came up with a way to recycle leftover kitchen materials you would usually think of as straight up waste. What would those be? Green tea ground, carrot and beet peelings, outer leaves of red cabbage. For Bubel, she combines all of those with organic soy vax. The result? Unique set of crayons, that stand out not only due to the way they’re produced, but also thanks to an original bean-like shape, and even natural fragrance.
