Contemporary Lynx’s Gift Suggestions Christmas time is getting closer and closer. If you lack ideas for a gift, here you will find our suggestions.

Whether you are a giver or a taker, Christmas is coming right up. A thoughtful gift can express our feelings better than words can. No matter if you want to give someone a gift that they will be happy with or just treat yourself, check out the recommendations below.

All of the propositions can be found in our Lynx Concept Store. 

  1. Contemporary Lynx Magazine 2(16)2021

This issue of our magazine focuses on the art of the future, contributing to the heated discussion of what lies ahead of us. This edition includes such names as Patricia Piccinini, Lina Lapelytė, Ciprian Mureşan, Jean Tinguely, Katja Novitskova, and Andrei Tarkovsky.

You will get the opportunity to read Krzysztof Kieślowski’s unpublished script Baby.

As you would expect from a futuristic issue, we also celebrate Stanisław Lem’s birthday, so get ready to take a look into the 2050 art world.


  1. Major Arcana – Tarot card

A careful observer may notice that recently, there has been a growing interest in tarot and, generally speaking, witchcraft, however one perceives it. For those who are interested in this topic, we recommend a set of cards designed by Marta Krysińska. In an interview with our magazine, she shared what she likes about her work: “I love the changeability of it, it’s never the same.” It is easy to see the difference between the cards designed by Marta Krysińska and a standard tarot deck. What makes this deck even more unique is the fact that it is a limited edition of 150 sets, designed especially for Contemporary Lynx.

Another handcrafted piece on our list is made from walnut and hand-forged steel. Made by Kuźnia Skały / Stone’s Forge, architect Marcin Skalski. A mix of blacksmithing and woodwork is a perfect gift for those who are into design and who like subtle decor. This is a great option for those who like to keep their interiors minimalistic yet still need art and decorations.

  1. “The Only Limit Is Your Head” – a poster by Vadym Solowski 

The ultimate poster that can elevate one’s walls and days. It is a great reminder for overthinkers to not only clear their minds but also to stay open-minded. The piece was created by Vadym Solowski, who likes to keep their works at a minimalistic value without depriving them of their symbolism. 


  1. A candleholder by UAU project  

Another design on our list. Unlike the decorations above, this piece is not handmade. Instead, it is a 3D printed modular candleholder. This position is suited for the design enthusiasts who care about sustainability and are looking for unexpected solutions.
