While in the West in the late 20th century a movement of playful experimentation in design was flourishing, Polish design faced challenges due to economic and political crises. „Post War Drobe” reimagines Polish design history, envisioning an alternative reality where postmodernism had the chance to exist. Combining contrasting rebar and fabric, often used as substitutes for traditional furniture materials due to resource shortages, „Post War Drobe” references classical wardrobes from before WWII. It mourns the lost cultural heritage destroyed and looted from Poland during the war. Instead of using the colour, pattern, and humour typical of postmodern designers in capitalist countries, „Post War Drobe,” set in the context of communism, adopts a serious, ghostly demeanor to emphasize the contrast between the two systems.
