Wire-encased lights are suspended above oak-topped counters at this bakery in Poland by designer Maciej Kurkowski. Situated in Piaseczno, a town south of Warsaw, Kurkowski’s Przystanek Piekarnia Bakery features a custom-designed shelving unit for storing and displaying bread. The unit occupies one wall and is made from 626 plywood modules stained in four different hues. A large blackboard covers the adjoining wall for advertising the day’s menu.
Black electrical cables run up the walls and across the ceiling, powering light bulbs surrounded by intricate wire shades. Oak counter tops sit on plinths covered in matte white tiles and with bevelled edges. One tile on each plinth is replaced with a plywood module engraved with the company logo.
