Home-grown companies, local design and top quality these are the characteristics of the products and collections awarded in the must have 2024 plebiscite, organized by the Łódź Design Festival. In addition to promoting the best Polish designs, the must have quality mark signifies a unique consumer recommendation.

must have is a plebiscite organized since 2011 by the Łódź Design Festival, which recognizes the best implementations from Polish designers and manufacturers. It is a free-of-charge quality label that companies can use at home and abroad. It was created to popularize good design and thus promote the domestic creative sector. must have is also a unique consumer recommendation and the most media event in Polish design.

 

It is difficult to single out one dominant trend in Polish design on the one hand, especially recently, there has been a strong return to craftsmanship, natural raw materials and local techniques; on the other hand, Polish women and men are increasingly willing to reach for the latest technologies and successfully experiment with modern materials. One thing is certain we do not deviate in quality from the world’s best models, which will be forcefully experienced during the must have 2024 exhibition, held as part of the program of the 18th edition of Łódź Design Festival (May 21-26).
