The exhibition Młodzi na Start is the result of the competition of the same title, organized by the Polish edition of the international ELLE Decoration magazine.

Its idea was born from the need to promote young, talented designers who take their first steps on the difficult path of industrial design. This competition is not only about discovering new faces of design, but also a platform for understanding on the designer-producer-recipient line.
Every year we set specific tasks for the contestants; and one of them is the competition slogan. This year it is "The Leading Theme". The leitmotif accompanies us at the stage of each creative activity, this time through the submitted works we want to find out what the leitmotif is for the contestants. What was the idea leading to the design of the competition facility, the creation of a prototype, what values does it carry and to whom is it addressed?
