Published:
“Ubojnia”is the second (December) of twelve parts of an original collection called ”XII”, entirely full designed by Karina Wiciak (designer from Wamhouse). 
About the collection “XII”:
The collection "XII" consist of 12 thematic interior designs, together with furniture and fittings, which in each part is interconnected, not only in terms of style, but also by name. Each subsequent design was created within one month, and the entire collection was take one year to create.
Here, visualization is to constitute more than a design, which is thrown away after implementation of the interior design, but mainly animage, which has a deeper meaning and can function individually.
These are not interiors made to a specific order, but designs based on theauthor’s fantasy and his fascinations of various sorts.
The author’s assumption is not to create trite, fashionable interiors,but non-standard places, full of symbols and metaphors, at the borderline between architecture and scenography.
Due to their nature, these are mostly commercial interiors, intended foruse and reception by a larger group of people. Yet, it is not supposed to be an art gallery, in which art is merely watched, but places in which it could be put into use and to do virtually everything – depending on the purpose and function of the premises.
The author of the collection did not strive to artificially ascribe ideology to random ideas, but rather to make the entire design readable and coherent, and at the same time to design every item specifically for the given interior.
“Ubojnia” (slaughterhouse) is not only an interior design, but a combination of design and art.
The author’s assumption was not to create trite, fashionable interiors, but non-standard places, full of symbols and metaphors, at the borderline between architecture and performance.
Due to their nature, these are mostly commercial interiors, intended for use and reception by a larger group of people. Yet, it was not supposed to be an art gallery, in which art is merely watched, but places in which it could be put into use and to do virtually everything – depending on the purpose and function of the premises.
The author of the collection did not strive to artificially ascribe ideology to random ideas, but rather to make the entire design readable and coherent, and at the same time to design every item specifically for the given interior.
At first glance, "Ubojnia" shows a motif of hatching, a sketch which not only the main element of decoration, but also visually changes the scale of the room. People who stay in such an interior may get an impression that they are shrunk, or at least that they are in a fabulous and unreal world.
Yet, the very name of the establishment suggest another, hidden message (in Polish “ubojnia" means “slaughterhouse”). Seemingly-paper armchairs called “Szkic” (in Polish “szkic” means ”sketch”) are suspended on meat hooks or tied to chains, which is supposed to symbolize omnipresent restrictions to creativity in art and design. The very word “ubojnia” may indicate killing of talent and creation, though not necessarily by third parties (as these are not shown in the images), but by the artists and designers themselves. Yet, it is but one of numerous interpretations of symbols which anyone can understand in their own way, or not interpret at all. After all, it is a commercial interior, so any possible, more or less blatant, ideology can be treated with a pinch of salt, and in the case of this specific interior, even with slightly “noir” sense of humour.
