PURO Q&A: Concept 21

People and spaces create the essence of a city. Architecture, unusual places and objects, strange nooks, well-known paths, emotions, and memories. In our cycle we ask those who inspire us about their ways of creating and experiencing cities. Artists, designers, and creators of the contemporary urban world.

Our sensitive, editors’ noses have led us through meandering lanes of the Old City to a tiny place that pulsates with senses. In a uniquely designed interior of Concept 21 – picturesquely corresponding with the historic architecture of Wielka Street – you will find the designs of globally recognized luxury brands and Polish designers. This concept store is “the fusion of feelings and subtle, sophisticated design and fashion” – born out of its owners Lena and Arkadiusz’s passion and search for quality.

 

 

We experience the city…

By looking through our personal lenses.

 

When we want to meet people

We go to Paris or Biarritz in the Basque Country.

 

When we want to relax…

We go for a walk in the forest or a wild beach in Słowiński National Park.

 

We discover… 

A unique architecture of old houses that give charm to the Old Market.

 

 

We like walking…

With our dog on the Warta River.

 

We find treasure…

In antique shops. We love vintage stores in Zurich, wonderful tiny shops in the Berlin district of Mitte or Stara Rzeźnia in Poznań.

 

The taste of the city… 

bittersweet taste of autumn in Poznań.

 

We can’t do without…

Ourselves. Besides, I always carry with me a cell phone and a Tom Ford coral lipstick. Arek – a sandalwood bracelet from the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and Oliver Peoples sunglasses.

 

A must-have item in our suitcase… 

Twice as many shoes as there are travel days and ILA cosmetics.
