Karina Wiciak designs slaughterhouse-inspired Ubojnia collection
Karina Wiciak from Polish design studio Wamhouse has designed a fantasy interior collection called Ubojnia inspired by a slaughterhouse which imagines paper chairs and chandeliers suspended on meat hooks.
Ubojnia refers to slaughterhouse in Polish, and is the second part of a collection of interiors called XII, designed by Karina Wiciak, as reported in dezeen. Ubojnia is a fantasy collection where all the interiors are imaginary. A customised adaptation of each design and the objects in it can also be ordered as per requirement.
The basic elements of Ubojnia features an armchair “Szkic”, which in Polish means “Sketch”; a suspended stool “Szkicownik”, meaning “sketchbook” in Polish; a chandelier “Papierek”, meaning “piece of paper” in Polish; a sphere-shaped, suspended and floor lamp “Kula”, meaning “sphere”; and a smaller suspended lamp and wall lamp “Haczyk”, which in Polish means “hook”.
The paper walls and staircase are illustrated in the collection with pencil hatching, a motif that continues in the folded paper armchairs. These armchairs appear to be held up by meat hooks hanging from the ceiling. Two bar stools are also shown as suspended from the black hooks, while a chandelier has been created from a cluster of hooks joined by crumpled sheets of newspaper. A spherical floor lamp is featured in the collection that resembles a prisoner's ball and chain, while other bulbs appear to have been skewered onto the ends of hanging hooks.
Ubojnia has been designed as a combination of design and art. The design was aimed at creating non-standard places, full of symbols and metaphors.
The collection XII will consist of 12 thematic interior designs, together with furniture and fittings, which in each part will be interconnected. Each subsequent design will be created within one month, with the entire collection to take one year to create.
