On February 1st, Desso's recently installed yellow
checker board Lita carpet tiles contributed to the atmosphere at a
new exhibition centre in Krakow, Poland which was honouring
the work of the Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska (2 July 1923 - 1
February 2012), on the first anniversary of her death. The Desso
Lita carpets had been bought and installed by the Finnish
furniture company, Martela.
Described by many as a 'Mozart of poetry'. Szymborska won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1996 and inspired thousands of poetry readers across the world.
Anna Komorowska, wife of Poland's President, Bronisław Maria Komorowski attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition entitled the 'Szymborska drawer'.
