Unikatowe Formy — how and why we do it?
Every brand has its own history and background. In the background of Unique Forms, there is a family-owned production workshop with a long tradition of over 40 years. The idea for a new furniture brand was sparked by the owner Julia, who decided to use the production facilities of her family’s company to create something unique in contrast to mass production. Julia can be described in many ways, but most often she is said to be a very demanding person. Today, she directs her products to such clients.
Technique and sensitivity to materials
Our proprietary designs contain a lot of respect for the craftsmanship. In innovative forms, we try to capture the essence of the many years of tradition of the production plant, which previously dealt with complex military projects and creating structures for the army. Military solidity, reliable functionality, and precision are something that is the foundation of the plant’s operations and naturally permeates into the furniture created here. Today, managers focus on training new employees and developing a work culture based on a result that combines reliable durability with aesthetics and sensitivity to materials. The severity of the metal does not detract from the poetry of our furniture. We combine materials, constantly looking for new ones, without distancing ourselves from the practices and experiences of our plant.
A stubborn designer and delayed delivery date
Smart graphic and machine industry designer
Such projects show that even the most advanced technologies cannot replace the thought and vision of an individual. That is why for a year and a half, we have been focusing on building a team of young, talented, and unique people with determination. Recently, we have managed to acquire a very clever and versatile young graphic designer. We are proud of Sebastian and are delighted to observe his development process, perception of color, object, and sensitivity to aesthetics. We also draw strength from the knowledge of a very good designer, Mr. Włodek, who comes from the machine industry. He is excellent at coming up with ideas, arranging stages, and working on prototypes. We think that this unique combination of talents translates into the final product and sets us apart from many companies in Poland operating in this industry. Our advantage is that we have our production plant, but more importantly, we have a fantastic team of people engaged in this project, and we are constantly looking for new fascinating people for joint activities.
This most unique form of production particularly engrosses us. We are interested in custom furniture, i.e., a single piece that we make on individual orders. We mean truly individual ideas when it comes to dimensions, size, shape, weight, but also function. We are flexible when it comes to colors: we have our palette, but if the client wants to order a specific color, it is not a problem for us, as we have our own powder coating plant.
We also prepare modifications of our flagship products. Enlargement, narrowing, an additional drawer on a good mechanism? Please, be our guest! We are very interested in these types of challenges. We focus on individual pieces, but of course, we are capable of producing furniture in larger quantities. In our regular production and the offer available on the website, we have about 50-60 models. From planters, towel holders, shelves, through dressers, consoles, coffee tables to dining tables. We combine metal with various materials such as wood, stone, glass, mirror, furniture board, or MDF board.
The quality of materials we order from external producers is determined by their selection. We do not save on this, and the choice of a partner is not based on the price of materials, but on their quality and the partner’s approach to the work performer. Therefore, we are proud to brand and sign each piece of furniture leaving our factory, – says Szymon Ogiegło Kamień
We source our stone from Hoder, a well-known company in Poland and worldwide. Their factory is located near our office in southern Poland, but it was not the distance that determined our cooperation, but their professionalism and many years of experience in the stonemasonry industry.
Our family carpentry, run by two brothers from Krakow, supplies us with wood, and we often meet with tchem. Wood is a bit different from steel, as some defects can actually be an advantage of this material. Hence, our visits to the carpentry, where we select and match the wood to the steel structure. The wood comes from Poland and Slovakia, is seasoned and appropriately dried. Our suppliers approach the wood with great passion and knowledge, so we are confident that the countertops they produce will not crack – adds Szymon.
