Mirosław Nizio. After working as a designer in New York for over a decade, Mirosław Nizio founded his own bureau in Warsaw. Since 2002 he has proven with his every project that one may create museum expositions in many different ways.
The designer, born in Biłgoraj, a town in south-eastern Poland, studied sculpture and architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He later moved to New York, where he continued his education at the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 1989, he opened his own bureau which dealt with design (amongst others, with interior, furniture and object design). The designer was active on the American market for 13 years and in that time he collaborated with firms such as Merrill Lynch, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Oskar de la Renta.
In 2002 he moved to Poland. In an historic tenement house in Inżynierska street in the Warsaw district of Praga, he opened not only a design bureau but also a foundation dealing with the animation of the cultural life of this neglected borough and a gallery which exhibits architectural drawings, photographs and sculptures (for instance, Nizio's sculptural works in 2004).
