School of Form

Szymon Filoda

A designer, craftsman and entrepreneur.

In 2008 he graduated from the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Poznań’s Academy of Fine Arts. His thesis project was the LIMBE armchair intended for mass production. He created the prototype with the help of the company ABC Formy Siedzenia. He already had a deep grounding in the arts when he began his studies and had great experience in joinery, modelling, wood technology and the conservation of antique furniture thanks to his schooling at the Technical School of Wood Technology as well as the Craftwork College. He established the Modelarstwo Odlewcznicze Sz. Filoda workshop in 2000 which cooperates with Man, Solaris, Schattdecor and Profim. He founded Squid Design Studio, which won “Academic Enterprise Leader” in 2009, awarded by the Mayor of Poznań, the chairman of Poznań International Fair, the head of Poznań county council and the head of the economic group of Wielkopolska provincial authorities. In 2010 he took part in the exhibition in the National Gallery in Prague, which was the largest ever exhibition of Polish design in the Czech Republic.

He is the head of the Metalwork, Carpentry and Prototyping Workshops at School of Form.
