„must have from Poland” is an exhibition, which is a continuation of the plebiscite connected with the exposition „must have”, developed in 2011 at the request of Łódź Design Festival. At that time, a group of experts selected 150 most interesting objects designed by Polish designers, that were manufactured. Later on, the group chose 42 winning products from all the nominees. The exhibition in Milan presents 25 of them. They are examples of a wise and sensible strategy of investing in design and a reflection of the current trends in Polish industrial design. The products are different, but each of them represents good design, innovative approach to a project, ergonomic solution and of course, great quality.

„must have from Poland” will be located in the Ventura Lambrate, which is a separate zone, just like Salone Internazionale del Mobile or Zona Tortona. The curator and organizer of the Ventura Lambrate is the Dutch Organisation in Design that specializes in international promotion of industrial design.

The project is co-organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
