Ania Jaworska is an architect and educator. She also has her own line of art furniture mainly in black color.
She currently is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Architecture. She holds a master’s degree in architecture from the Cracow University of Technology in Poland as well as the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan.
Her practice focuses on exploring the connection between art and architecture and her work explores bold simple forms, humor, commentary and conceptual, historic, and cultural references. Jaworska’s work was exhibited in the numerous exhibitions, notably at 13th Venice Biennale as part of Grounds for Detroit, Chicago Architecture Biennial, as part of BOLD and Chicago Cultural Center as part of CHGO DSGN. She designed a bookstore at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts in Chicago, which is currently on view. She is a 2017 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program Finalist.
The resemblance between the objects is identified by consistency of color, material, surface, scale, shape, and form. The furniture encompasses simplistic forms that are exaggerated in such way as to achieve authoritative and imposing proportions. As a result, individual units command the space around it, but also direct the body, making one conscious and aware of their form. The furniture design in the collection sets the stage for specific actions, arranges behaviors, and defines new attitudes.
