We are architects who are involved in their projects from the beginning to the very end. We care for integrity of our ideas. We never compromise on quality. The objects that surround us carry a part of us. That’s why we design and make them in a way to make them last as long as possible.
Material culture is what defines the quality of our everyday. And we spare no effort to make your everyday take a turn for the best. Meet VANK. Experience applied arts in practice fuelled by a passion for creation.
We create furniture. Objects. Tangible signs in space. We do this by putting our knowledge, talent, passion, and craftsmanship to work. We believe that it is possible to break free from the ‘whatever works’ approach, impermanence, and insularity through contact with intelligently-designed items, created with great attention to detail and using state-of-the-art technology.
“Art everywhere” is the core philosophy of the design avant-garde. We follow this concept as a manufacturer of office chairs. We reject imitation, regression, and outdated forms. We strive for a refined future, built upon a foundation of solid workmanship.
For 20 years now, our design team members have been developing their skills, creating technologically advanced ergonomic office chairs. At the same time we have been working on solutions stemming from our design identity and creativity. This identity is deeply rooted in the legacy of modernism.
In 2012, our chair named WOODI won the Red Dot Design Award. This motivated us to create a new Polish brand, one that puts an emphasis on the strong “personality” of our products, designed for both office and home environments, and the so-called third space alike. We are all about modern Polish design. We shun mass production as keen advocates of Dieter Rams’ ten principles for good design.
With an aluminium foundry, a team of highly-qualified engineers, and the latest technology at our disposal, we can monitor the whole course of the process of creation. This makes us able to translate our ideas into reality with no compromise and with a complete control over the ultimate result.
A full involvement into creation of new forms enhances the satisfaction we get after each completed – and appreciated – project. This surely is the best source of motivation to keep pushing things forward. We want to create new swivel chairs, conference chairs, sofas, acoustic panels, and other functional forms.
We respect material culture, that’s why we liberate furniture from blandness. We value independence, rejecting imitation and regression. We are a brand that provides the market with modern functional solutions of global quality. We address our offer to people who appreciate distinctive and clear forms, and sophisticated design. We adore objects that combine beauty with utility.
We believe that the design identity has a strong presence on the international market. Using the best materials and state-of-the-art forms, we turn our passion into works of art ready to meet the strictest aesthetic demands.
We are really happy when we look at the effects of our work. We know that the furniture we make is special, and that it can transform virtually any environment. We hope that many more of our products will turn out as successful as WOODI, becoming icons of contemporary design. We are proud to be able to contribute to the global culture in the way we do.
Our everyday professional challenge involves developing innovative designs and putting our ideas into action on our own terms.
We operate according to ISO standards, in the scope of both quality management (ISO 9001) and environmental protection (ISO 14001). We also abide by standards related to occupational health and safety (PN-N 18001:2004, BS OHSAS 18001:2007). Our office chairs come with certificates proving their ergonomic properties and durability, and our acoustic office solutions have been certified for their acoustic performance.
