The School of Form has just released the third year of graduates. Presentation in Gdynia is the first extracurricular exhibition of their diploma projects. Selected works are the ones that were found particularly important.

The young ones set the trends. They look far away, they are not afraid of taboos. Modest student works, intimate prototypes focus on the needs as well as social, environmental and material problems. Young people talk about important things : observe and tell, they are critically or ironic, they propose solutions. Force to reflect or to act. Often they are the beginning of a wave of change.

At the Gdynia Design Days exhibition there are presented the works of graduates of four undergraduate faculties at the School of Form: communication, domestic, fashion and industrial design.
